Yes. It absolutely does and has been proven. Their lateral line is used to sense movement and vibration. Playing loud music is like rhythmically tapping the glass.

Yes and No, they sense the vibration and that causes them to react, a constant thumping almost heart rythm will send them into a stress known as "flight", the thumping replicates a predator in the fish world and the prey fish will stress and either be fine but flighty or they will stress themselves to death.

However I have personally done a BRICK/TANK test and well it was in a 150g livewell but anyways dropping a brick into the water( or rock,fish secluded from injury of course) proved nothing at all, the fish didnt even flinch. it was a 7 pound largemouth but according to fish anatomy the lateral line should pick it up. Then size comes into play, a 7# largemouth isnt really prey for much if anything( hence the reason its at 7#)

I'd have to say nature can be pretty loud, waves crashing, storms, rivers running, rain, people.....

haha i can tell where this question came from! think about it like this: are smaller (prey ) fish or larger (predator) fish usually more jumpy even after they "get used to you" for me it is way more the prey fish!

it can , but just remember that wild fish are way more tough and tolerant to outside conditions,fish in the wild live not as long often enough(except those huge long lived fish that do the opposite in the wild!)

this is my opinion at least
