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 -_-

"Some girls won’t dance to the beat of the track
She won’t walk away
But she won’t look back"

i've no scientific answer, but i have speakers either side, above and below my tank, and i like to believe my bettas are avid fans of heavy metal!! if they aint, tough, coz they get to listen to it everyday whether they like it or not lol!

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.

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