If he spent more than the amount of the tank on the amp it would be pretty loud. He says his is always playing it loud. I think a pretty cranked 700+ watt Yamaha could stress them out over time with excessive bass especially if the tank is only 12 feet away. Mine is kinda set up the same way. My tank is only about 5' from my home theatre but luckly I couldn't see spending more than $500 on mine so my Sony Dream Theatre probably doesn't do too much harm (plus the bass is at mid way because I am in an upper level apartment).

You'll know for sure if your watching 'Finding Nemo' and you really do find Nemo..on your floor along with all your other pets ; ) For the record I play in 2 bands, both practice in my garage about 25 feet from my tank. While I am sure they can hear/feel it, I figure the bass is probably the hardest on both my tank inhabitants and the other humans I co-habitate with. Common sense is the rule here..

Best of luck!

No experience here, just my thoughts... but there is some common sense involved. Like it was mentioned, it's not the sound, it's the vibrations. I couldn't say for sure what will and wont bother them but I'd monitor things as you turn them on. If the tank is shaking, then yes, WAY too much... If when you turn it on or up you see the fish darting around then it is probably going to be stressing them. I doubt a little bit of vibrations every now and then will kill them but I"m sure they don't like it... Just watch them and see how they react to it.
