In search of nemo: fish protagonists of the film. Here are the tropical marine fish present in the dentist's aquarium from the Pixar animated film. In the article we will focus only oncharacters in the aquariumand on Dory, Nemo's friend starring in the sequel "Finding Dory".
The characters in the film are many and… they are all fish. The dentist's aquarium that kicks off the filmFinding Nemoit is very populated and, in reality, the fish in that aquarium would live very badly together. If you are thinking ofset up a marine aquariumwith all the fish of the Finding Nemo movie, make sure you have a tank large enough to give the fish enough space to live. What are the fish from the movie Finding Nemo? Let's see them together in the complete list.
Finding nemo: fish
The Pixar film was a success and led to an increase in sales in the world of aquariums. I tell you right away that setting up an aquarium is a fantastic way for children to discover life, however aNemo themed aquariumit's not very realistic. Remember that the movieFinding Nemoit has no educational purposes, it is a fantasy and even the dentist's aquarium is a bit imaginative. To tell you are the combinations of the same fish present. Before going into the merits, here is the list offish from the movie Finding Nemo.
- Nemo, Amphiprion Ocellaris or Clownfish
- Dory, Paracanthurus hepatus or Blue Surgeonfish
- Bloblo, Zebrasoma flavescens or Yellow Surgeonfish
- Jacques, cleaner shrimp or Lysmate amboinensis
- Bumblebee, Diodon holocanthus or porcupine pufferfish
- Gurgle, Gramma Loreto or Royal Gramma
- Deb, dascyllus aruanus or striped damsel
- Peach, starfish, resembles a protoreaster nodosus
- Gill, Zanclus cornutus or Moorish idol
The combination of fish present in the aquarium of the filmFinding Nemoit is by no means easy to maintain and would require a large, coral-free aquarium.
Nemo, clownfish: Amphiprion ocellaris
Theclownfishof the Amphiprion Ocellaris species is easy to keep in the aquarium. It adapts well to captivity, accepts dehydrated food and, yes, it is considered a good fish suitable even for beginners. For the card, characteristics and needs, I refer you to the pageClownfish or nemo.
Dory, blue surgeonfish: Paracanthurus hepatus
The blue surgeonfish or Paracanthurus hepatus coexists well with the clownfish but it is important to remember that theblue surgeon fish, in order to develop properly, it needs a lot of space and an aquarium full of live rocks: it is a peaceful fish, with a somewhat shy temperament and needs gorges and inlets to hide. For Dory's profile of the film In search of nemo, I refer you to the page: Paracanthurus hepatus. You will notice that this fish is sensitive to some diseases and needs to eat several times a day.
Bloblà, yellow surgeonfish: Zebrasoma flavescens
It adapts well to the life of the aquarium, it can swim carefree with Dory and Nemo but loves open spaces so it wants tanks of at least 250 - 300 liters, in addition, if the aquarium is to be so populated, better go up to 400 liters. It is absolutely not suitable fornano reefprecisely because it needs space to swim. If he is short on space and kept in poor condition, he can become aggressive ... and, since he is more robust, he can be aggressive with children as well. A. ocellaris (nemo specimens). For the details, characteristics and needs, I refer you to the Yellow surgeonfish page.
Jacques, cleaner shrimp: Lysmate amboinensis
It needs good quality water, so make sure you have an excellent water filtering and foaming system. It needs well mature aquariums, so you can't add it to an aquarium under construction. Can live peacefully with all fish from Nemo's aquariumexcept for bumblebee.
Bumblebee, porcupine pufferfish: Diodon holocanthus
Porcupine puffer fish loves to eat small shrimp. It can live with a good sized lysmate but cannot survive in small aquariums. It needs an aquarium of at least 300 liters (minimum indispensable) and to consume several meals a day. Filtration is crucial in keeping up with the poop this fish produces! As explained for the species Ostracon Cubicus (another fish that swells with air), even the porcupine pufferfish should be kept in quiet tanks, where there are no fish that make rapid movements such as the yellow surgeonfish.
Gurgle, royal gramma: Gramma loreto
It is a very peaceful fish, calm but to live well in the aquarium it needs a nice vertical rock. For all information on thecardand needs, I refer you to the dedicated page: Gramma Loreto.
Deb, striped damsel: Dascyllus aruanus
The name bridesmaidit is totally unsuitable for this species! This name invokesdocility, opposite to the temperament of the striped bridesmaid! The Dascyllus aruanus is a cute fish but in most cases, in captivity, it becomes aggressive, territorial and overbearing with the smaller fish ... yes, the striped damsel could kill the other fish present in theNemo's aquarium.
Starfish: Protoreaster nodosus
It is not clear which species it should be, it strongly resembles a protoreaster nodosus, unsuitable for reef aquariums and unsuitable for life with small fish: it is a carnivorous invertebrate and requires excellent water quality. Although a different species, you can find information on this genus and the needs of the starfish of Nemo's aquarium on the page: red horned starfish.
Gill, Moorish idol: Zanclus cornutus
It is an extremely difficult fish to keep in captivity. The reason? Both its space requirements and its nutritional needs that cannot be satisfied with the classic marine fish feeds that you find on the market. The Moorish idol, in the aquarium, tends to suffer from nutritional deficiencies. To live well, it requires a well-mature aquarium of at least 400 liters.
You cannot set up an aquarium like that of the dentist in the film, you understand that it is a fantasy film already by observing the vegetation present in the aquarium or its substrate. Nemo's aquarium has colored gravel (more suitable for freshwater aquariums), marine aquariums need a substrate of coral sand, better still if of aragonite, excellent for keeping pH levels stable. Generally, those who want to set up a marine aquarium with theNemo characters, does not want to give up the anemone. Anemones are very difficult to manage when kept with other corals or particularly sensitive fish.
