Music?

Just curious can fish hear music? Do they like it? Has anyone had an experience with a fish reacting to them listening to music. I know sound travels differently through water, not to mention their tanks, so I was just wondering.

I have my stereo on the same table as my 10 gallon aquarium. I listen to a wide variety of music...Pop, rap, rock, metal, instrumental.... I sometimes play it loud (I can feel the vibrating when I put my hand on the table) and the fish dont seem to act any different.

Now I got lady Gaga's "Dance In the Dark" stuck in my head -_-

I dont think they can hear enything but feel the vibrations of it through the water.

Some ocean fish have actual eardrums but I dont know about freshwater fish. Even if they could hear, the sound vibrations would be blocked and distorted by the aquarium walls and the water.

Betta fish can only feel vibrations.

Do we know that for sure? No, no we dont. So there is a possibility that they can hear things.
