Still want a Dory fish? Experts are acting preemptively this time around and recommending a wonderful alternative for fans that want a Dory look-alike fish, but don't want to risk damaging the future of the species. "A 'Baby Dory' fish does exist--it's called a yellow-tail damsel. I've been in the aquarium industry for many years and you would be surprised how often I would hear "Look - a baby Dory!" - from a child pointing at the yellowtail damsel in a tank. It's a fish I've steered parents toward in the past when they've requested a Dory fish, and it's a great alternative. I'm concerned about the impact this increased demand will have on this fish and want to prevent as many unnecessary losses as possible. Not only is the yellow-tail damsel much smaller than the blue tang, which can grow to more than a foot long, but it's also a very hardy fish. The yellow-tail damsel is from the less aggressive Chysiptera genus of damsels which are less aggressive and less territorial than most other damsels. With ablue tang, you're going to need a tank size of no less than 180 gallons, while yellowtail damsels can do well in 30 gallon tanks." -Mark Valderrama, expert With a smaller, easier to care for alternative to the real Dory fish, we can potentially bypass a disaster like we accidentally created when Finding Nemo was released.
This is a Red Sea fish tank set up (not as in the movie) for the two main characters from the movie Finding Nemo. If you don't know, the clown fish is Nemo and the blue tang is Dory.
The filtration system is in the back of the tank.

Arguably, Finding Nemo had one other disastrous effect: demand for clownfish in tropical saltwater tanks expanded. Clownfish can be bred in tropical tanks, but are cheaper to obtain through fishing, leading several less than sustainable hunts for the cheerfully colorful fish, with methods including releasing cyanide into the water, to stun the fish to make them easy to collect. Other groups collected live coral from reefs to decorate tanks, placing additional stress on already stressed reef areas. Actual numbers are a bit dodgy, but multiple local groups in the Pacific and the Atlantic claimed that both coral reef and numbers of fish declined after “Nemo fishes,” accusing several outside fishing companies of corruption.
