Cinnamon clownfish (Amphiprion melanopus) or fire clownfish is a widely distributed clownfish. It is found in Indonesia, Melanesia, Micronesia, southeastern Polynesia, and the Great Barrier Reef.

They are omnivorous, and will eat a variety of meat food items and algae.

They can be territorial and aggressive, especially as they get older, and particularly to other clownfish.

Cinnamon clownfish adults can grow to 12 cm (4.7 inches), and the female is usually bigger than the male.

The cinnamon clownfish is a dark red to orange with a mahogany "saddle" on its back. Juveniles and adults have a white head band, which turns a nice blue with age.

Host sea anemones:

Entacmaea quadricolor - bubble-tip or purple base anemone (usually)
Heteractus crispa - leathery sea anemone (occasionally)
Heteractus magnifica - magnificent sea anemone (rarely)

It is an omnivore in nature, but it mainly eats zooplankton. This fish will accept all foods in the home aquarium. -flakes -brine shrimp -mysid shrimp -algae
