Amphiprion frenatus or bicinctus

Bought a small pair couples weeks ago labeled as tomato’s (frenatus) but since then a second band has been developing more. One is a deeper red than the other one which is more of an orange color. Frenatus or something else??

They look like frenatus to me.
Are these wild-caught or captive-bread?

How large are they?
It's been a while since I have bred melanopus (should be close in development to frenatus), but if I remember correctly, the middle bars first form and develop before they ultimately fade away. So them still developing more should be quite normal with young frenatus.

Those are frenatus, the middle bar will vanish as they age
