The bright cherry red color of the Tomato Clownfish makes it an appealing fish for any marine aquarium. In nature they range throughout the South China Sea, the Philippines, as far north as Japan and west through Indonesia. A large clownfish species, the adult female Tomato Clownfish can reach a length of 4 inches. They can become aggressive as they get larger, and will sometimes bite the hand that services the tank.
Tomato Clownfish pairs will typically spawn about every 10-14 days and the eggs hatch 7-8 days later. The average nest size is about 400 eggs. The larval period is short, about 9 days, and the juveniles exhibit a mid-body stripe that will disappear as they age. ORA Tomato Clownfish are about 6-7 months old when shipped.
