Finding Dory

Factual error: When the bucket launches, Marlin and Nemo fly into a small plastic tank with a toy fish. The tank was filled with freshwater, which means Marlin and Nemo would have died in there before they had a chance to get out.

Suggested correction: Salt water fish will die after a while if left in fresh water, but it takes between hours and days depending on the fish. In fact a common method to kill some parasites is to place the salt water fish in fresh water for a few minutes (it is not recommended to do it for more than 10 minutes). Marlin and Nemo were not in the tank for very long so would not have died, and probably would not have shown any adverse symptoms.

Continuity mistake: When Carol, the MLI employee, is first seen carrying the white bucket in the corridor and also when Carol thinks she located Hank, the bucket has absolutely no writing on it where the handle's attached on both sides, but when Dory looks down at the bucket suddenly "Destiny" is written on it.

Trivia: The first time we see Hank the octopus, he is pulling Dory's tank toward him. If you look at the wall just before he does this a picture of Darla, the villain from 'Finding Nemo'.

Question: In the post-credit scene, The Tank gang are seen still trapped in their now algae-covered plastic bags as they reach California. Since this movie takes place a year after "Finding Nemo" (2003), how did these fish survive without eating anything for a whole year?
