What kinda of Clown fish do I have?

Sorry I don't have a picture but I was just wondering what kind of clown fish I have in my tank. He looks like a cinnamon clown minus the strip, he's all one color. He's a mean little fish, he has the whole tank to himself and therefore he think he owns it. I cant even stick my hand in my tank without him attacking it, is this normal?

There is a picture of all the available clownfish here. See if one matches yours.

Maybe you have a skunk. It seems to be the only one without that familiar stripe.

After looking at those pictures it looks exactly like the tomato clown minus the strip. Maybe it is a tomato clown that has messed up genes or something.

Sounds like a Fire Clown (a.k.a. Flame Clown) to me.
