A crime of passion?

KETV Channel 7 reports that Tropical Warehouse in Lincoln Nebraska was burglarized over the weekend.  Someone smashed in a window to gain entry into the LFS.

So what was taken?

A single aquarium of unspecified size, one filter, 10 lbs of decorative rocks, sand, and some fish food, along with 56 marine and freshwater fish.  Pricier equipment (easily sold on the black market) was ignored.  It seems the burglar is an overzealous newbie wanting to set up a tank for the holidays.

Be on the lookout for any forum threads with a poster asking why roseline sharks (freshwater) and clownfish (saltwater) are dying in his new tank.  Anyone with information on this crime should call Lincoln-Lancaster County Crimestoppers at 402-475-3600.
