The Naked Cinnamon Clownfish looks similar to the Fire Clownfish but exhibits a more scarlet red coloration as opposed to the candy red of the Fire Clownfish. As juveniles, they will have a thin white head stripe, but that will fade away as they mature. The body of the fish is dark red and black. The fins, face, and outer edges of the fish are a deep red, but it gradually turns black towards the center of the fish. The Pelvic fins are black and the other fins have some hint of yellow around the outside. This is one of the larger clownfish species, making it even flashier and more eye-catching. It’s also on the aggressive side of clownfish. They have bold feisty temperaments similar to other clowns in the Tomato complex. To avoid, or at least minimize issues with aggression, add the Naked Cinnamon Clownfish to your tank last or close to last. If you plan on having other aggressive fish, adding them at the same time is the best thing to do. This will limit territorial behaviors because the aggressive fish are getting accustomed to the tank at the same time, which is also after the shy fish become established. Naked Cinnamon Clownfish are hardy and easy to care for. They can be kept in pairs and can be hosted by an anemone.
