Be careful geting them into reef tanks. Next thing you know they will be asking for that new 500 dollar light fixture for christmas.

My thoughts went somewhat down this line as well, with one minor deviation.

How many new "Nemo" tanks will now be sold, set-up and discarded (along with the deceased inhabitants) in the next 6-9 months?
Some will go on to do things properly, but many will become the victim of overzealous merchants selling them their idea of a proper saltwater fishtank.

That game looks sweet. I never saw it before, and here I've been wasting my time performing surgery with trauma center second opinion. Love that Wii

It doesn't come out until later this month in the US. I do enjoy some trauma center too though.

That sounds like a pretty sweet way to get kids involved in caring about the ocean...who knows, maybe they will grow up and become marine biologists and end up saving the oceans!
