Hi There,

I am currently in the process of getting a bigger tank. However the only space I really have is in the living room.

Problem some of my family members use the Karaoke system. ( mean its loud for me), but will it affect my fish?

WIll it cause stress? and make them timid?

It probably depends on how loud you are talking about. I have a small 20 gallon long with some Rams and cardinal tetras on a table between a couple of speakers in my entertainment room. I thought when I first set it up that the vibration may be a problem. Even with the speakers at a mopderate volume, the fish do not seem to react to it.

The human nose can detect some compounds even if the concentration in the air is astoundingly weak. Of the small quantity in the air, a much smaller percentage is going to be dissolved in the tank water. Of course it all depends on what you burn and how much, but my guess is that both you and your gf would keel over long before there'd be any harmful effects on the fish. In short, I wouldn't sweat it.

Same with the music. Of course there are folks who enjoy an earth-shattering base to the point where the vibrations could actually damage a tank, but within reasonable levels, I don't think even a headbanger system would affect your fish in any way. I'd worry about permanent ear damage long before I'd worry about the fish.
