NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be fake.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, our team spotted a YouTube video on an unverified channel, dated February 2, 2018, with a title: Fish swim on Carrefour supermarket hypermarket store floor in Tbilisi, Georgia. As per the report, an aquarium broke at one of the supermarket chain stores in Tbilisi, Georgia. The video exactly matches with the viral clip.
