"A rare, 21/2-foot-long fish was about to be chopped up for lunch at a Chinese restaurant when a kindhearted diner paid $900 for it, which included a bucket to cart it off.

After shelling out the dough, Ian Watson whisked the elegant, female hump-headed Maori wrasse out of the Sydney, Australia, eatery, and brought her to an aquarium."

Well, at least he saved the fish. Wonder how much the aquarium paid him for it?

Byez! Very Happy
