"The film features a Clownfish trying to rescue his son from an aquarium, and in the end of the film the young Clownfish manages to escape back into the ocean by being flushed down a toilet. Unfortunately, some aquarists still think this is a good method of getting rid of living fish. No fish species will survive being flushed down a toilet and into a sewage plant, and certainly not a salt water species like the Clownfish. There are other ways of euthanizing a fish that involves less pain and stress for the fish."

Do people really do that to a living fish? :( I'm thinking about getting a clownfish so I'm doing research and I found this paragraph from an article...
