Hi Mccook! Gill, voiced by Willem Dafoe in the Disney film Finding Nemo was an Angelfish. Below you will find online references where you may verify that this is the correct answewr. ?Gill is an angelfish with a whole bunch of scars over him. It makes it look like he's had a hard life.? Source: IMDB http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0266543/ -------------------------------------- ?Special mention must go to the angelfish named Gill, voiced by Willem Dafoe, the literally scarred veteran who befriends Nemo in the fishtank. He's the quietly charismatic sort who, unlike Marlin, encourages Nemo to seize his potential. When Nemo is trapped, Gill refuses to let the gang help him out, thereby forcing Nemo to swim out himself. He preaches the "if you believe it, you can do it" philosophy.?

Bit of Nemo trivia - actually Marlin wouldn't have remained as Marlin but would have become Marline: "...clown fish, or anemone fish (Amphiprion akallpisos), that live in close symbiosis with sea anemones on coral reefs in the Indian Ocean. The fish live in monogamous pairs since there is usually only enough room for two fish on each anemone. In this case the reproductive potential of both fish of a pair is limited by a female's ability to produce eggs since even a small male can produce more than enough sperm to fertilize all her eggs. Under these circumstances it is most advantageous for the female to be as large as possible since larger females lay more eggs than small ones. As one might suspect clown fish start off life as males and only become females later in life when they are larger. Here again, sex change is socially controlled. A male changes into a female only when his female partner is removed and he is joined by a smaller fish. This is called protandrous hermaphroditism" http://www.ptmsc.org/html/fish_.html I wonder how Pixar would have explained that to the kiddies?!

Actually, Gill is a MOORISH IDOL. Notice the Colouring, Its Black, White, and Yellow, The exact colour of this fish. Moorish are related to Angelfishes. But in latin terms, its the only fish in the group, Zyangadae or whatever. Listen to me, Im right :P
