Last Sunday, we visited the Catawba Science Center and we had the most wonderful experience in seeing the real fishes that were featured on Finding Nemo. What's also cute is that the Dory fish is swimming closely with the clown fish. The blowfish had to be in a separate tank though.
Here you can see my travels , my gadgets, my unboxings ..
Here's a quick video of the Finding Nemo aquarium kit sold @ PETCO. I couldn't find any showing the tank, so i decided to put one up, for people to see how big it is, and how it looks when it's setup.
This is my first aquarium, so i know i botched clearing out all the small gravel that floats. The water at the time the video was shot, was settling for the initial 48 hrs before the fish could be put in.
Nowhere in the box does it say how much the tank holds, but on the PETCO website, it says 4 gallons. That's pretty good for the $30 it cost. Other $30 tanks they sell, only hold 1-1.5 gallons.
This kit comes with the filter (The lid is setup so you can put a mountable filter, if you want to add it), Nemo statue and 1 plant. The other tall plants inside the tank, were bought separately. I really wish it came with a light. That's the only negative for me. It's a bit hard to see due to the reflection, but the tank also includes a devil ray background (It's pretty nice). I bought the blue gravel to match the background and i really like how it all came together.
The purple thing on the corner is a feeder.

The fish tank shows the real fish along with animated Finding Nemo characters on a journey to find Nemo once again. The ride is fun and is never a long wait.
