Does aquarium fish hear music: myths and reality.
One of the most tender and vulnerable pets is considered to be aquarium fish. Their calm and unhurriedness is transmitted to the owners, fills the house with harmony and balance. Therefore, the surrounding sounds directly affect their condition, and therefore the standing of the owners.
If talking about music, then you should start with the fact that aquarium fish are strictly contraindicated in loud sound and vibration.
Strong acoustic vibrations provoke stress in the aquarium inhabitants and can even destroy the aquarium (especially if it is of a large capacity).
The issue of the influence of music on aquarium fish has not been studied as well as, for example, on dogs and cats, but still some conclusions can be drawn.
Researchers managed to notice that the hearing in fish is better tuned for low vibrations, and high ones are perceived worse. When the fish listen to quiet, quiet classical music, their movements become slower than usual, it seems that nothing bothers them. When listening to loud, peppy, marching music, fish movements become chaotic, anxiety and throwing are noticeable. Such music may adversely affect their condition.. Loud sounds excite, annoy and frighten fish.
Thus, all owners of aquarium fish can be recommended to listen to melodic, calm music, for example, the era of classicism, romanticism, with a fairly quiet dynamics.
