There's an article out there about how impossible the tank in "Finding Nemo" would be. I wasn't able to find it just now, but it's an interesting read. I think some of the highlights were:

- The moorish idol probably wouldn't survive. They're very delicate.
- The puffer would eat the shrimp.
- The tank is too small for a tang.
- The starfish isn't reef safe.
- The royal gramma and the damsel wouldn't get along.

I'm sure there's more.

What do you know? I found another article: The Nemo Tank Guide

Yes the moorish idol look alike I was going to say the longfin bannerfish but they are the same. She does need to research this more.

ya, shes never had fish, and basically what she wants to do is "out do me" lol its like a contest to her to see whos tank is the best and because im not a saltie thats whats she wants to do. her view on everything is that a fish is a fish. theyre all the same except for color/shape/size....shes quite blonde....no offense to anyone out there who is blonde and smart. lol but shes def not using her brain right now.

The tank in finding Nemo was a lot smaller then yours... you could probably house the tang in your tank. But the other incompatibilities are still there... personally I would not have a damsel in my tank...(except cromis, a smaller fish in the damsel family)
