fish and sound?

I just have a question, are fish sensitive to sound, I assume they can hear, but do loud noises affect them? I've had a 30 gallon set up in my rec room for a few months now, I also have a home theatre in there, and was watching a movie the other night and this just popped into my head, and I don't want my fish getting sick or suffer or anything because of it, thanks

I would imagine any strong vibrations, such as from a subwoofer, would be somewhat upsetting for the fish.

That's my fish. The subwoofer from the home theater is about a foot away from them, and they don't seem to care at all. They just keep sleeping.

I do know that, however, they know when someone is comming into the room before we actually enter the room because they get into "formation" at the corner where I usually feed them... Smart little beggars!!!

I have my sub along the same wall as my tank. There is about five feet distance between them. I have not noticed any problems.
