Abstract

The tomato anemonefish Amphiprion frenatus belonging to the family Pomacentridae and subfamily Amphiprioninae has very high demand in the marine aquarium industry due to their attractive bright red colouration. The adult A. frenatus is bright orange-red in colour, with one white vertical stripe just behind the eyes, joined over the head, whereas the juveniles are dark red, with three vertical white bands and black pectoral fins.
