Take Nemo Home!
OK, so you have just seen Nemo 3D and you want to bring Nemo home? Well we can help you make this a reality and even if you have had problems keeping goldfish alive, We will make sure that nemo will thrive in your home.
Firstly you must decide which fish you want to keep in the aquarium. If it is just Nemo and a few other small fish, you can get running with a small starter pack (Aquanano 40) which will be OK for 4 - 5 fish. If you want to keep more of the character then you will need to look at the Aquastart 900 starter pack.
Secondly you must understand what is needed to care and look after the marine animals. We have a guide,SETTING UP YOUR MARINE AQUARIUM, that explains what is needed to keep and maintain a marine aquarium. If you need any help along the way we are available during work hours to assist with your aquarium over the phone or in store.
Marlin (Nemo’s Dad), Coral (Nemo’s Mom) & Nemo (Title Character)Clownfish,
A great starter aquarium fish. Fully grown size for common clownfish is 8 - 10cm. A full grown pair of clownfish will need a 70 litre aquarium. Clownfish can be kept singly or in pairs, but not in threes. Buy two small fish or one fish smaller than the other. All clownfish are born gender-neutral, so in the aquarium or when mating, the smaller fish will become the male, the larger the female.Jacques (Tank Gang) Cleaner Shrimp (Nano & Large Starter) – A good aquarium invertebrate, he will help keep aquarium fish healthy, and eat scraps of food the fish miss. He cleans up after the other fish as is know as part of a clean up crew. Gurgle (Tank Gang) Royal Gramma (Nano & Large Starter) – A good aquarium fish. Max full grown size: 3″. It likes swimming through caves. Carnivore. Peach (Tank Gang) – Starfish (Large Starter) – A starfish shaped like Peach is a good aquarium invertebrate, It may eat reef invertebrates or corals depending on the type. Serpent stars ( who generally have a large central disc and small skinny legs) are easier to care for in a mature tank and are reef safe (safe with live corals). Deb/Flo (Tank Gang) – Three Stripe Damselfish (Nano & Large Starter) – Damsels are known to be very hearty, but can also be bullies and will pick on other fish. Should only be kept with other bullies, not with peaceful fish. Should be kept singly without lots of places for them to hide. Bubbles (Tank Gang) – Yellow Tang (Large Starter) – Needs 4+ feet of tank length to swim. Loves her green veggies, will be healthiest if you fed several times a day on Algae flakes or sheet Dory (Marlin’s Friend) – Hippo Tang/Blue Tang (Large Starter) Needs 4+ feet of tank length to swim. Remember how much Dory loves to swim, and how confused she’d get running into aquarium walls! Loves her green veggies, will be healthiest if you can fed several times a day. Tad (schoolmate) – Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish – (Large Starter) Peaceful fish but moderately difficult to care for. best looked to only try this fish once you have experience of looking after other fish. Bloat (Tank Gang) – Pufferfish, unknown (Large Starter) Will eat invertebrates (shrimps), requires a special diet, some have continuously growing teeth that need hard shelled food to wear them down. (Not compatible with Jacques or Peach) Sheldon (schoolmate) – Seahorse (Large Starter) Should be kept in a single species tank, and fed twice per day. (Not compatible with most fish as seahorses are poor swimmers.) Not recommended for beginners. Please ask if your interested in Seahorse aquariums.
