Finding Nemo

Ok the kids want the finding nemo fish. But I cant figure out what all of them are.
If you saw the movie please help?

1. The butterfly fish(?) in the dentists tank (has the twin sister flo that she sees in the glass)?
2. The goby(?) in the dentists tank?

I realize I will not be able to put all these fish in my tank but it would be nice for the kids if I could get some.

the butterfly fish you are talking about is actually a three striped damsel. i know it looks blue, but if you watch the special features on disc two, it has mr. rays encyclopedia which identifies and talks a little about all of the characters, and he shows a "humbug fish", which is also a three striped damsel. there isnt a goby in the tank so i think you are talking about the royal gramma basslet, the purple and yellow fish. both are readily available in most lfs.

This link is less for you douggiestyle than it is for others whom might come across this thread with the release of the movie on video.

http://reefcentral.com/FindingNemo/

I highly suggest anyone looking to get a 'nemo' themed tank to read the above link and please feel free to post questions/comments either here or in another thread.

oh heck, just save the reading......alot of the fish shown together arent
compatable, most require a very large tank or are difficult keepers.

But rest assured, most of the LFS's out there would be glad to sell
them to you, to their ultimate demise and your financial loss.

I actually found and read that article a couple of weeks ago while searching for a list of fish that are in finding nemo. In reality that articule is good for the next door neighbor who went to the pet store and bought a clown fish and put it in a fishbowl from wal-fart and added some morons[sic] salt.

I saw the movie in the theater and cant remember the fish in the movie. i have not purchased the dvd yet and most likely will not see the movie again til after christmas.

I could have swore that fish was half blue with a false eye on the dorsel and forceps mouth. The mind is getting old...

This whole Nemo thing has me a little upset. I haven't seen the movie, but the BF has... and now he just has to have a Nemo. (We won't go into the issues of my 34 year old BF being obsessed with Nemo! )

Anyway, for that reason I am now researching and planning my first saltwater tank - a Nano Reef, for the express purpose of housing one or two Nemos. Fine - I'm responsible and will do my research so that I take good care of the fish... just like I do with my FW buddies. But - I know there are tons of people who won't and will just run out and buy Nemos without a clue of how to keep them. Everytime I'm in my LFS and I see those overcrowded tanks full of little clowns I get really sad just thinking of the fate that's waiting for most of those fish!

Anyway, with all the Nemo talk lately - especially in my own house... I just wanted to vent. But, I know that posting my rant here is like preaching to the choir!

One good thing about them chosing Nemo to be a clownfish is at least they are Tank Raised and we won't have to worry so much about them going onto the endangered Species list because of the movie..

I do believe the tank in the dentist's office was also over-stocked if you ask me.

Regretfully, this movie is going to cause the death of many an innocent clownfish much like parents who buy their kids baby rabbits for Easter with no clue how to care for these animals. I'm hoping it generates some greater appreciation for the hobby, but I feel sorry for all those percs that are going to be dumped in fresh water tanks and un-cycled salt tanks.

My own maroon clown 'Rocky' wanted to audition for the lead role in the sequel, but he wants to play a bad guy so he can blow stuff up, preferably my Coral Beauty.
