From the comments section:

"That is the dumbest thing I've heard in a while. You'll draw in a lot of freaks and losers who won't buy things but families probably won't be coming in with their kids to buy fish. The only time I ever went to one of these places was with a kid to buy an aquarium and fish. Get over your boobies lady, they are everywhere. No big deal. geez."

I'm scared by the fact that I find one of the responses to be reasonable.

I'm in Austin for a movie, would any Austinites be willing to point me in the direction of this fine establishment? Or where I can find that 35ft human powered Viking boat?

Since it's a fish store, would it not make more sesnse for them to go bottomless?

Reasonable, but wrong. This is Austin and there's some measure of pride in my fellow citizens supporting those who go topless. Barton Springs pool has women who go topless all the time and it doesn't stop families from bringing their children in by the bus load.

The commenter is either not from Austin or new to the area and doesn't understand that we're not like the rest of Texas.

The store should be on the northbound frontage road just north of 45th st on I-35. Can't help you with the Viking boat but it sounds like something that would be near Lake Travis or the western side of Lady Bird Lake.

I had an ex-G/F who's Grand Idea was to open a topless oil-change shop with some stripper friends and call it "Boob and Lube."

Idiot that I am I pointed out that motor oil can get painfully hot.

If it's no big deal why would it prevent anyone from coming into the store?

Don't mess with Austinians. They'll lock you in their basement, rape you, and make you eat tropical fish.

Because it's photoshopped by a ham-handed reporter. Also, that looks like it might be the back of the place, where all the windows are sealed so natural light doesn't interfere with all the florescent lighting. Street view shows it used to be a church when it was under construction.

Photographers/reporters dare not monkey with images. They probably swiped it from their website.

Street view shows it used to be a church when it was under construction.

"What are you building here?"
"Oh, a place where people can get down on their knees and thank God."
"So, it'll be a church?"
"Sure."

people who are going to buy their kid his/her first aquarium and guppies aren't really the big spenders in aquarium shops.

The big spenders are the people who really get into their aquariums and tropical fish collection, and that demographic is mostly male... at least, all the aquarium enthusiasts I know are dudes.

dudes who like boobies, and want to see them even if they are all saggy and weird looking.

jayday: Just watch out for the piranha nipple piercing.

Ouch!


Actually know of (friend of a friend) a guy who lost a nipple to a wolf fish. (the South American freshwater kind, not the North Atlantic saltwater kind.) Jumped out of the tank during a water change and bit it and a hunk of his shirt and then held on. Lost the nipple getting the fish off his chest. Incidentally, Wolf Fish are also known as Piranha Killers.

Everybody I know who has more than 20 tanks is an older, married man. (The one exception is a woman with an 8" tall Mowhawk dyed White, Green, and Blue. She's married to a guy 50% covered with tattoos, and keeps BADASS fish.)

Being one of those folks, I can tell you that we spend an OBSCENE amount of money on aquaria. (Not so much the fish, which we tend to buy from each other, but on food and equipment.)

It's true... we don't have basements here.

Yes, we have basements. But you need to spend more than $150k. My grandfather's old house was two-story, and beneath it had a basement. Here's the google maps link.. and it's for sale if you want it. :-) http://tinyurl.com/yzedg5p
