The Tomato Anemonefish (Amphiprion frenatus) is a tropical fish species that can be living in anemones on coral reefs. It is known to occur in the waters of the Western Pacific and has been recorded from the Gulf of Thailand to southwestern Palau, north to southern Japan and down south to Java in Indonesia. The body is coloured red-orange with a black edged bar just behind the head. In the older animals the body is often coloured black whilst the juveniles are the brighter orange-red. Occasionally a second black-edged white bar can be found mid-body. It can be found on coral reefs, in lagoons and coastal embayments living in association with anemones, particularly the anemone Entacmaea quadricolor. The Tomato Anemonefish (Amphiprion frenatus) grows to a maximum length of approximately 14cm.

Family: Pomacentridae
