FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - A vandal who broke into a Fall River fish and pet store destroyed a 180-gallon reef tank, killing nearly all the fish and coral.

Owner Bob Schenck told The Herald News that the damage on Wednesday was "totally malicious."

The Boston Globe reported on Sunday that an 18-year-old tropical fish named Big Blue survived the attack.

Schenk said security cameras showed that the suspect was inside the darkened store for more than 90 minutes.

The vandal struck the large tank with a pipe several times until it finally cracked. Moments later, he took out a piece of glass from the tank to make the water inside gush out faster.
