Judging by the picture below, I think the arowana/catfish tank on the other window was destroyed at well. The rest of the fish inside probably also died from rapid temperature change/other stress =/

Wow, can't believe my eyes....that place has a ton of nice big monster fish species. Although I never bought anything there, it was always a place of admiration.

I feel bad for their owner.

Went to win this afternoon and passed by this store.
Business was as usual in this corner store and all the tanks inside seem to be ok.
