Actually, I do use facebook and I got the same error message. Possibly something to do with the privacy settings of whoever created the facebook page?

I use Facebook and I was connected to Thor's post. I connected through my Android phone and not a desktop. Maybe that's why?

A friend sent me a screen shot of Bigbro's Facebook posting (I'm not on Facebook anymore). Apparently the new owners of Bahooka will not keep Rufus and there is a concerted effort going on to secure him a home. People have reached out to Damons in Glendale as well as to Don's and the Tonga Hut. Hopefully someone with more information than myself will see this thread and post on it.

Maybe someone can post the info here on TC for Non-Facebook users

Onyx_Noir has mentioned that they have connections at Aquarium of the Pacific, I believe
has anything come of that?

I know Kari is talking to Damon's in Glendale to see if they will provide a home for Rufus.

Fez Moai has posted that he was offered Rufus by the new owner of the former Bahooka
but has posted no details, other then that, like was he looking to sell Rufus or just find a new home
for him?

That is all I have heard to date.

I'm only a member at the Aquarium, but I did send them an email. The email was sent on Friday afternoon, however, so I'm not really expecting a response until this coming week. Hopefully they'll be able to tell me something.

Are you and Thor friends on facebook already though? Because if you are, that's why you're able to see it and we aren't.

This is what was on Facebook.


This was from Sven...Animal Shelter Alert!: Bahooka's Rufus orphaned! The new owner of the property will not care for him any longer. Who will give the orphaned monster fish a good home !!?




Tom posted this...Thor Art WHen I got up this morning, I decided to do a little cartoon about this lil' fish…and here's what I believe is in his world right now…sadly. I encourage anyone that likes, to add a caption of their own….and give Rufus a voice to be heard~~
(Only posting this as it is art by Thor to help in the plight of Rufus, for those of you that can't see FB.)

I don't live in the area, otherwise I would try to help out. I am sure some aquarium enthusiast will help Rufus. What a cutie he is...he deserves a home with a Tikiphile who knows and loves him.

Thanks for reporting the cartoon! Sorry... I didn't realize the Facebook link was filtered. Hoping to hear soon that someone comes through for a place for Rufus. Myself and others have offered to offset the cost of moving him!

I'm not in the area either, but does the tank come with Rufus? He looks like quite a big boy, and would need a huge Tank, and good filtration. A commercial aquarium might take him, if a Tiki Centralite doesn't.

Hope it all works out well for Rufus. The drawing THOR did is very moving. I am hopeful that he will get a good home.
