When my kids knew I was getting a saltwater tank, the first words they said was "mom, we HAVE to get Nemo!!". The clownfish has always been a popular fish due to how pretty they are and how hardy they are (depending on which type of clownfish you get... oddly the Percula Clownfish is not one of the more hardy ones). But boy, when Finding Nemo came out, their popularity with kids skyrocketed. My kids wanted ONLY "Nemo's" in the fish tank :-)
This is a very colorful fish and it is very fun to watch. There are more hardy types of Clownfish that I would recommend for a beginning saltwater tank enthusiast, including the skunk clownfish and the ocellaris clownfish.
Even though these are small fish, they do best as a single fish (of the same breed) in smaller saltwater tanks.
