Downstream Aquatics opening hours WTF???

Recommended Posts

[MENTION=3726]grubby[/MENTION]According to their facebook page they will only be open Thursday Friday Saturday due to Steve and Eddie working 14 hour days 6 days per week.Out of courtesy they should change their phone recorded message to reflect this.

Blimey, well fair enough then. I don't begrudge them a break then. One thing though, they have gotten a lot of exposure through this thread.

I spoke with steve both him and Edwin already work 6 days and most nights every week. They run aquarium servicing businesses and does alot of environmental work and 2 days at Griffith uni looking after their snakes, reptiles and fish, they do the best they can. Remember he's president of qfas, pres of angfa, vice pres of beta Australis and does alot if artificial rock work and aquatic surveys...

Opening hours are..

Thurs 10.30-6pm

Fri 10.30-6pm

Sat 9-5pm

He's looking at changing the phone message but with his old age and senility, its taking a bit of effort for him ( lol)

I dunno Edwin, but I know Stevo does an awesome job for the Hobby as an unpaid ambassador. I thought they had Andy manning the fort when they were out. Possible job opportunity for a Uni student ???

Hey Grubby, I hope you are well! Yes I was there helping out (PAID) and my partner was volunteering (NOT PAID) and we went overseas and we both talked to Steve once we back and Steve said Downstream Aquatics will call you and get back to you at the end of the week but Downstream Aquatics never did and that was a month ago! So the shop must be going slow and they can make more money doing there other business or its a tax strategy! All I hope is Downstream Aquatics is going well!

Me too I was there. Had a great old chin wag. Bought some superb Stradbroke Island Rhads.

I recon everyone that visits the shop has a chat. It's just a part of knowing Steve Baines.
