Goldfish and Music
« on: September 19, 2011, 03:01:53 PM »

Something I was contemplating today, I was playing some piano classical type music this afternoon, half hoping by some miracle of a chance it would calm down Lucky who is having a hard time with the tank cycling, poor little guy.

So I wondered, has anyone found that their fish respond to music?
Goldfish have good hearing and obviously feel the vibrations, but it made me curious about whether they responded to certain types of music?

Of course I'm not sure how loud something would need to be played for them to hear it in the water? I'm not even sure my music was loud enough earlier for Lucky to hear, but I thought it would be interesting nonetheless to hear what you guys thought Cheesy

Music Therapy for Fish!

One interesting article I found was this; (Link is not visible to guests. Please register to view.)
On the bottom of the first and continued on the second page it mentions about fish and music  Smiley

Water transports sound better than air, so I think Lucky heard it just fine, his ears are made to hear things through water anyway Wink

Besides, if plants like music, why not fish? Smiley

Mine liked to watch Cartoon Network and the Discovery Channel (as long as it wasn't Shark Week!).  They also seem to like watching my baby (and he likes watching them), as long as he isn't too loud.  As I write this, they look like they're watching the news with me...
