The ORA® Captive-Bred Tomato Clownfish is also called the Bridled Clownfish or Red Clownfish, is found across the Pacific and is almost always in conjunction with an anemone, such as Bubbletip Sea Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). This Tomato Clownfish has a wider area of distribution than those of the Fire Clown, which is typically restricted to Indo-Pacific reefs. It is also believed to utilize coral to host in absence of an Anemone. Captive-Bred Tomato clowns tend to be darker in color than their wild counterparts. However, as the fish matures it will change to the lovely red/orange shade. Juveniles are spotted with white bands, as well as black pectoral fins that slowly disappear as they grow older. It is possible to reach 5″ in length however, it typically reaches the max size of 3.5 inches inside an aquarium.

The Tomato Clownfish that is Captive-Bred has an advantage in comparison to wild harvested species. The captive-bred clownfish are extremely durable and more used to the conditions in home aquariums. Thus, they are the perfect choice for newbies as well as experienced aquarists. The captive-bred clownfish may also be kept alongside a variety of other species of captive-bred clownfish in the event that they are brought into the aquarium simultaneously.

Captive-bred clownfish can be easily bred in your home aquarium. Females are the largest of the pair and two fish usually remain close to one another within the aquarium. They are egg-laying fish and lay eggs on a flat surface and protect the eggs from tank mates. The eggs usually hatch between 6 and 11 days, based upon the temperatures. The fry need to be raised in separate tanks with a diet consisting of baby brine shrimp and rotifers.

A very ferocious eater the Tomato Clownfish can consume meaty foods and herbivore-based dishes.
