Bali Clown ID

I was watching a movie from a guy who posted an anemone movie. I started to look at the Bali diving videos. This clown caught my eye,

what do you think it is?

Yup. It is kind of interesting how the three stripes give the appearance of a different body shape.

I know you have seen juvenile tomato's before.
Do they usually have the white stripe on the fin's as juvi's? And on the dorsal? That one just looks differently then young tomato's i have seen.

I was attempting to make it hard for everyone

I thought it was quite appearant that it was in the tomato complex. But if I gave the hint it would give it away

However I haven't seen many clowns with white on the fins like that, its quite intresting.

Cheers

I would say that its an unusual specimen, but still a tomato. Not all tomatoes keep their stripes that long in the first place. The white on the tail is also kind of cool.
I saw a similar fish in a LFS not too long ago and my first thought was, "is that a red chyrsopterus?". Obviously the thought disappeared quickly, but the three stripes certainly make them look completely different than the adults. Maybe this allows them to be accepted into the anemone more readily.
