Not sure if it can..But in response to a post by someone else, and thinking about it myself, I was wondering if anyone knows if this is a problem to a Betta. Do they respond negatively to Loud Music? I surely hope not, I do have music on from time to time, and sometimes loud.

It seems like our fishy enjoys it..he watches from the glass..he sometimes swims around but I haven't noticed anything strange with him, like it bothers him..but at the same time, I don't want to cause problems..:blueworry: Does anyone know what kind of effect this could have?:???:

If anyone can just advise on this, would be greatly appreciated
Thanks :-D

First off, fish can't hear the music exactly. They get the vibrations in the water made by sound waves... If you were to put your head under water, and have music on, you'll hear the bass which gives off a lot of sound waves. Basically, if you have the speakers next to the fish they can be very stressed by it. I have music on all the time, but with nice little speakers that are in the middle of the room, away from fish tanks :)

I have Sammy on a table next to the couch in our living room and the speakers are about I would say..4-5 ft away..so it's not directly near him..but yea, I am aware of the vibrations..and I watch to see if he's getting stressed, but I noticed a time or two..when my daughtr dances to the WII Dance, and the water moves, I tell her to calm down it might be bothering him..(but he watches her thru the glass) and bobs in the water, with no distress..it's cute..but yea, I am hoping it's only cute, and not a problem..:) Thanks Sena

:lol: You'll know if he were stressed. I've had kids tap on the glass (and told not to soon after), run near my tanks, a dog drink from my tanks, a cat drink from my tanks... -.- The only stress they showed was with the dog and cat. But they also thought the tongue was food :lol:
