Mixing Clownfish – Cinnamon Tomato and Percula

Don’t do it!

Thought I’d post this video to show other people the result. Unless you have a large enough tank, it’s not a good idea to mix clownfish of any breed. This video should prove it. I have contained the percula as I am only tank-sitting him till I find a more suitable home (as I was given the percula from a friend who was getting rid of his tank).

You will see from the video that the tomato is particularly interested in harassing him…

Tomato Clownfish Flame (Vanuatu)

Got my Tomato Clownfish the other week. Quite a character and sitting well with my Mono Sebae (brackish). The tank is full marine salinity.

The Tomato loves to dig holes, and I believe he has had a bit of a fight with the Mono as the Mono is missing bits of its tail. Probably over the prized position next to the heater in the tank!

The Tomato has a huge appetitive and eats practically anything, which is on par with what other users on the net are saying. Overall I have to say he is quite a cool fish. Might get him another friend, but the tank is small and tomatos are aggressive.

Tank details: 2ft tank, Salinity 1.020, temp 26C, no anemone, 80% play pit sand, 20% coral sand, Plastic plants to confuse the heck out of the tomato 😛
