Perhaps the Fishers’ spirit animal really was the fish; the apartment’s 360-degree views of New York City and its floor-to-ceiling windows give it the feeling of a very luxe aquarium (sans water, of course). Which is totally fitting — and very meta — considering one of the apartment’s biggest claims to fame is that it has been housing a much-talked about 1,100-gallon tank filled with the couple’s finned friends.

Purchased in 2005 for a mere $9.67 million in 2005, the unit swam onto the market in 2014 for $16 million, but closed recently for $2 million less. No word about where the fish will be relocated.
