Dozens of aquarium tanks came crashing down at Aquatic World in Napa after an earthquake rattled the area Sunday morning.

Co-owner Jim Jacques had 150 aquariums in his store, and was only left with 15 after the quake.

The earthquake left hundreds of his tropical and salt water fish floundering on the floor. Merchandise also flew off shelves and his office computer screen came crashing down onto his glass table.

It's a business Jacques has put six years of hard work into.

"You just look at it and just think, 'Where do I even start?'" Jacques said.

He says nearly every fish that's still alive in his store had to be rescued.

Jacques says with the help of friends, he hopes to have the store cleaned up in the next few days.
