johnny depps costar rufus needs a new home gets the deets on helping bahookas famous fish here

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!

In the meantime, check out beautiful Rufus in action AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    Just once when you guys follow a story we're involved with it would be so nice if you got the details right, or even mentioned us. We always have to end up doing damage control when people get the info wrong and it's a lot of work. In this particular case, the misinformation can even affect Rufus' story and make his move harder and that would really suck. :(

    Aquarium of the Pacific has never ever ever been interested in Rufus… they only have salt water animals and Rufus is a fresh water Pacu.

    It is most likely that Rufus will be going to Damon's Restaurant in Glendale, but we have a lot of logistics to work out first. Moving him is a big undertaking. If you actually want to help Rufus, here is where you should be sending people: Thanks.

    Re: Hidden Los Angeles – Thanks for posting the fundraiser. Just noticed your link to it. You should correct the other info though… NPH and AOP aren't involved and the person taking care of George is the same person who's been doing so for over a decade. He's not the cook.
