fish behavior during storms

Have you ever noticed your fish behaving differently when there is a storm? i know this is a natural thing in the wild obviously, but until today i never noticed a change in the behavior of the fish in my aquarium during a storm. They were all swimming around and laying and such, and then after a reallyloud thunder crack the fish all swam behind plants and are hiding. They are still hiding and are progressively getting more skiddish.

I only notice it in our 55 gal tank. Lightning cracks and thunder strikes really echo in our apt. I'm assuming that the sound is penetrating into the tank and causing a scare. It only happens in our 55 but that's probably because it's the only room with 3 out of 4 outside walls.

I guess they pick up on the vibrations or some kind of static in the air, my tiger barbs hate storms

My male bettas usually blow really big bubblenests around whenever a big storm blows through. None of my other fish seem to change their behaviour, though, far as I can tell.

I think a lot of it has to do with barometric pressure changes that come with storms.
