    Former Morgan Stanley Employee Turned Fish Farmer Didn’t Go Into This Business So People Could Tell Him When And Where He Can Drag His Aquarium

    Sorry he’s not sorry about working ’round the clock to get this business off the ground.

    A Bronx man who runs a fish farm in his 14th floor apartment is being sued by his landlord in a building where neighbors claim the tanks leak and stink up their homes. The landlord claims Christopher Toole, 47, is violating his lease at the Riverdale building by illegally breeding fish and running the Society of Aquaponic Values and Education from the home…He has “refused to refrain” from making noises and causing odors, the lawsuit says.

    Neighbors say Toole is responsible for several large leaks and drags his fish farming materials across the floor through the night. “It’s irritating because you hear noise all the time. It’s 3:30 in the morning, and you hear him dragging his aquarium or whatever it is across the floor. It has changed my life,” said resident Roch McDowell, who lives directly below Toole…Toole formerly worked at Morgan Stanley and served as a vice president for Sovereign Bank. He now teaches kids about fish farming and sells his tilapia. He told the New York Post he was not aware of the suit, but said “any publicity is good publicity.”

    Zoe Cruz To Shutter Hedge Fund

    Don’t cry for the Cruz-Missile, though. Apparently she’s already strategizing her next move.

    Cruz is said to have been struggling to raise anything beyond the initial $200 million she obtained from Voras Capital investors, the source said. The source said the decision to return investor money was made recently and all clients would get their money “promptly.” Cruz’s hedge fund, which began raising money and recruiting employees in 2009 formally opened in 2010, was down 8 percent last year, the sources added…The source said Cruz is fielding job inquiries in the finance industry, but has not made any decisions.

    Zoe Cruz Is Happy Investors Didn’t Throw Money At Her Hedge Fund

    Sometimes name recognition alone isn’t enough to attract lots of money. Zoe Cruz’s start-up hedge fund, Voras Capital Management, which bets on broad economic trends, began trading in mid-2010 but has struggled to get much past the $220 million mark, say people familiar with the firm. Another challenge for Ms. Cruz, these people say, is […]
