I have noticed that my clown loach is sensitive to bass/vibrations. Any time I get up from the couch and start to walk anywhere in my place the clown loach quickly hides behind some plants or a rock. I have also noticed this when I have my stereo up a little too loud, he will stop where ever he is and it seems like he is listening, and then quickly dart somewhere to hide the next time the bass hits.

That is the only fish I have noticed it with. My angels, guppies, cories, tetras, and kuhli's don't even seem to notice.

this is my opinion at least
The fish dont live long because there are bigger fish out there.

disease, famine,larger fish are all issues with wild fish longevity.

i meant that generally, long lived and large growing fish usually live longer and grow larger in the wild than in captivity.

I agree about heavy bass being stressful to fish. Bass the way that it is used in some music is very unnatural. Over time, this bass would be a significant stress factor to tank inhabitants.

Decibel (Loudness) Comparison Chart

an interesting site if your interested in sound and understanding how measuring sound is determined.

dB or deciBel is the standard measurement for sound. about 3 dB is the noticeable difference in sound preasure levels, an increase of 10dB is ~twice as loud, or a doubling. Respectively an increase in 20dB is ~ 4 times as loud.

Subsequently a noisy office at about 90dB (about like an ocean's waves crashing) is is 4 times quieter than an a loud radio or stereo playing. OR it's about 32 times quieter than a jet engine from 100' away (about 140dB)

Or, if you have an extremely loud stereo like what I used to have in my old truck, I would go to competitions and hit around 148 dB, I've seen some close to 155dB

Basically what I'm getting at is, the ocean, however loud it is, is many many times quieter than what you can subject your household fish to. In my mind I think playing the drums loud or wailin' on the strat or les paul is about like a hurricane crossing over the coral reef.

Tangs seem like they would be into rock-n-roll, blennies probably more into the blues.
Not sure who would listen to country.

I live in an apartment and the guy below us likes to watch movies with the sound set on deafening. Two weeks ago it was so bad I could watch the water in my tank vibrate from his bass and the fish were none too happy about it.
