Concerns about betta fish tank in screening room
Well, this is interesting. My main hobby is film criticism and record collecting, so I'm a bit stunned to find myself on a forum about aquariums of all things. I'm completely new to this hobby and I was looking into getting a 5-gallon aquarium and betta fish for a shelf in my room. I did my research on tank sizes, heaters, filters, plants, and so forth. Then I began having second thoughts. My two concerns involve power consumption and noise. The first reservation comes from the components in my room. I'm an amateur film critic, and my bedroom doubles as my screening room. The equipment I use (TV, amplification, DVD player, subwoofer) each require thier own power source, and my fear is that with a pump and a heater running at the same time as a movie, I'll end up blowing a fuse halfway through a film. My second concern is whether the noise from the movie and vibrations from my subwoofer would cause stress to the fish. Would the fish be comfortable during a loud movie, and would the power be overloaded if a filter and heater were in use? Please excuse the longwinded nature of this post.
