Tomato clownfish lives nicely even without having a host anemone and can eat most meat or vegetable food. It has been reported to be aggressive and territorial when mature, and specimens have been considered very aggressive even towards clownfish of other types of fish.
For this reason, it’s best kept singly or in mated pairs; however, many it will cohabit with other clownfish varieties if they are introduced at the same time. This better if you want to keep with other fish that must be bigger than Tomato clownfish. The Tomato Clownfish is easy to breed; the fry can be fed on baby brine shrimp and rotifers.
