This is ridiculous, almost ALL* marine fish go through a planktonic larval stage where they look nothing like the adults and drift in the current, and yes, they may travel hundreds of miles before settling out. This is quite different from a juvenile Clownfish traveling that far. Once these larval fish are recognizable as a Clownfish they have already found an anemone to live in where they will spend their entire lives, if they do not find one they are quickly eaten, they are poor swimmers and make easy prey for predators without their venomous companion.

*Sharks and rays are exceptions, as are Seahorses and Pipefishes, and some fish are mouthbrooders which hold the developing young in their mouths until they are old enough to live on their own.
