Finding Nemo was a huge hit when it debuted in theaters back in 2003. The film had such an impact within the pet industry that many insiders refer to the phenomenon as the “Nemo Effect.” People who had never cared for fish as pets before were suddenly inspired to start their own saltwater aquariums with a clownfish of their very own. Just like any other pet, caring for a saltwater fish can be challenging. We’ve put together some great information to help you determine if caring for a clownfish—and some of the other animals in Finding Nemo—is right for your family.
Finding Dory, the sequel to the smash hit Finding Nemo, made its way to theaters in the summer of 2016. Armed with the knowledge and experience of guiding first-time aquarium owners after the release of the original film, we decided to prepare some educational material in advance this time around to prepare for any potential “Dory Effect.” Here you will find videos on how to care for a “Nemo” (a Clownfish) or “Dory” (a Blue Tang) fish, as well as a synopsis of the film and insights from industry heavyweights like Richard Ross, Ret Talbot, Bob Fenner, Mike Paletta, and Marc Levenson.
