Quick question

Would a fish tank facing a television irritate the fish in the tank? Could it hurt their eyes?

I have my tank not directly facing the tank but close to the front of it, I swear my fish watch the TV.

The flickering light might spook them at first, but they'll very quickly get used to it. Same thing with loud music.

Depends on what you watch. My fish all swim to the front of the tank and get really active while 24 is on. But I've also had a few go belly up during American Idol.

My fish watch a lot of old movies. I hope they don't turn black and white.
