Kevin's last name is "Valentine", but thieves showed him no love, after they took his fish.

"They took some filter, aquariums and a bunch of exotic fish, probably $600 of exotic fish from different parts of the world," Valentine said.

So many fish, the culprits had to carry them out in large buckets.

"There was some Clown Loach, Discus...." he said.

But that was after they broke in Valentine's glass door.

Total loss about $2,000. To add insult to injury, insurance won't pay for the broken door because he's renting this space, Valentine said it's a Merry Christmas indeed.

"It's kinda funny they steal it the week before Christmas - I would of had a big sale right after Christmas. Thanks for ruining my holiday. Glad yours is okay," he said.

Still, the store owner said he will be okay. He just hopes the fish are.

"If they don't know how to take care of them, they won't live very long, so it won't do them much good," Valentine said.

Tropical Warehouse re-opens Wednesday, and Valentine will add security, like an alarm system and cameras.
