You'd think people would be lining up in the streets to take home this piece of LA history!
But that does not seem to be case, as of yet!
The infamous tiki bar Bahooka in Rosemead, CA has been a carrot-chomping Pacu fish's home for over 30 years, but the giant sea creature known as Rufus may be out of a tank real soon!
That's because Bahooka is being gutted to become a Chinese restaurant.
A former cook at the restaurant has been feeding him every morning, but he's been living in the dark and despite a desperate plea on Twitter to find him a new home, so far, no luck.
Word is that the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and even Neil Patrick Harris himself have been interested in adopting Rufus, but the fish who once had a starring role along side Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas may be up sh-t creek without a paddle. Or a fin. Or…. WE CAN'T MAKE JOKES AT THIS TIME WHEN A BEAUTIFUL FISH'S LIFE IS ON THE LINE.
The thing is, the rest of the Bahooka tiki restaurant will be going to Clifton's Cafeteria, located in Downtown L.A., why can't they also take care of the most beautiful slow-moving fish ever??
Hello?? This is a desperate Finding Nemo situation over here!

A man is facing fines to the tune of $70,000 after illegally smuggling 40,000 piranhas into New York!

Meet the Axolotl.
It’s like a water-breathing, thin skinned salamander that wears a crazy headdress.
Oh and it’s permanently smiling. Super cute, unique, gross and weird all at the same time.
This crazy lizard fish thing calls Lake Xochimilco near Mexico City its home.
In 1998, the Mexican Academy of Sciences found 6,000 axolotls per square kilometer. In 2008, they only found 100.
Now? They haven’t found a single one. They looked for three months.
They’re about to do another three-month survey to try and find if any of these guys are alive in the wild.
We really hope they find some because they’re named after the Xolotl, the Aztec god of death and fire and that’s just so super awesome.
Check out some axolotls doing their thang, aquarium style.
From the looks of it, he’s ready for a baby!
Ashton Kutcher was spotted in Malibu on Sunday living the good life, and taking it easy!
Joined by a young friend, the 35-year-old actor fished the day away, and even caught two little fishies!
After they were done angling, the duo had a cute picnic lunch, but not before they took pics of the boy with his haul!
It’s already pretty clear that Ashton is going to be the ‘fun dad’! Ha!

greatest largest seafood chain might be closing it's doors for good!
Ugh! We wish this were a fish tale, but it's true!
Darden, the parent company that owns Red Lobster, is in the middle of a fiscal meltdown that will apparently require it to either close down all 705 of its iconic restaurants or at least sell/spin them off!
Noo!! This is an unimaginable blow to our

Gillian Anderson is no stranger to scary, slimy creatures… we can all thank her X-Files training for that.
So when she wanted to do something for charity that involved her taking off her clothes and draping a scary eel over her shoulders, she was able to handle her bidniz.
Gillian got all sorts of topless, only barely covering her boobs with the gross eel, her hair looking blonde and amazeballs.
The 45-year-old actress is certainly in some pretty damn impressive shape!
So, why did she take off her clothes and get all eel covered??
She was posing for
