setting up a "nemo" tank...not possible right?

I have a friend who just bought a 100gal salt water setup. she wants to do a tank like the tank in Finding Nemo. I told her it wasn't possible. She said she looked it up and said that it would be fine. I am no expert on saltwater fish and tanks but I think shes in for it if she actually goes through with this. Basically, I'm just trying to get proof from you guys out there in the saltwater world that it cant be done.
She doesnt believe me, what can I do to stop her from making a huge mistake?

To be honest to you I`ve never seen that movie sorry to say. Can you or others post what fish were in the tank?

Some of those do have a few problems. The survival rate of a moorish idol is extremely poor. They dont make it in captivity that often. There is one that looks like it but I cant remember the name of it. I`ll look it up. They have a better rate of survival. The butterfly fish is not reef safe so if you are talking reef here then that wont work. The puffer might be OK but you wont be able to have a clean up crew as he will consume them. And last but not least the starfish needs a mature tank of at least 1 yr old. Just some of the things I see.

its a plain old porcupine puffer, and the moorish look alike youre thinking of i think is a heniochus(sp?) butterfly fish, i dont think a tank that size could support all of those fish, but thats just my opinion
