a $20,000 fish? Hey, why not?

Found this little beauty online.....I can't say I've ever seen a 20k fish before and I am not impressed. What do you guys think?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I get that they are super rare and extremely difficult to catch due to where they live and the depth, but that's an awful lot of money for a little fish, IMO.

I guess the question is, who does buy such a fish? I understand there are people with ALOT of money, but really? 20k? At what point in being rich does that amount of money for a fish not mean anything? lol

Rethoric question.
There are all kinds of people out there, some buying fast supercars, some buy soccer clubs, etc. Next to that what's 20K for fish really?

If I played in the NBA I'd want a little red angle fish that cost 20 grand so I could point at it and tell my guests "see that fish, it cost 20 grand"....lol

Ok I wouldn't but I could see the attraction to that...
