Great! Thanks for all of your help. You don't happen to know the species of fish that feature in finding nemo do you?

Anytime!
Personally, I like the Yellowstripe Maroon Clownfish but they are agressive and you would have to watch out what other fish you would like to keep.
One more thing, some clownfish have cheek spines (like the yellow stripe) and should not be netted.

Sounds like Scott gave you some very good info. I want to reinterate that you do not need an anenome for them to be happy. Also that they need a very mature tank to survive. A reef tank sure would look nice though. LOL

So by a mature tank you mean that i couldn't just setup a tank and they'd be my first inhabitants? I'd have to have had the tank up and running for how long? Years, months?

A mature tank of 9-12 months for the anenmoe, the fish can go in after the cycle is complete and you nitrAtes are less than 20ppm.

Dori is a Blue Tang but you might need a bigger tank for her...

Melousu58 meant (I think) that the anenome needs a mature tank... not the clown fish. Most folks' first inhabitants are clowns, from what I can tell!

My O. Clown has been just happy for 6-7 months without any anenomes. The front left corner of my tank is his "host"! He's just now venturing into a little overhang/cave near his old home and seems to like it there too. He never strayed much away from home, until I added a Bangaii Cardinal. The cardinal like to hang out by Nemo's home too, and when he wanders off for a while, Nemo will venture out and find him! Pretty cute to watch.

Anyways... Clowns will do just fine in a new tank, without an anenome.

edit: Looks like Roka and I were typing away at the same time!

You guys are just great. Thanks.

I'd already started to look into the whole cast thing. Dori is no good as she'd need more space. I can't have a Moorish Idol either (Gill). I could have a butterfly fish though... i think.

I'm gonna try and find out what the whole cast is in terms of species and then work it from there..

I definitely can't have Bruce
