  1. I have no idea where I should post this so I chose here. (Either here or amps or misc I figured)

    I'm thinking about getting fish for my room, either with a tank that can fit on my desk or a bigger one that I have space for on one of walls.

    But if I get the bigger one it'll be closer to where my amp is, and I know loud noises can kill fish. The bigger fish tank will be about 13 feet away from the tank, and the amps are pointed right where the tank will be (and I can't movie the amps it's at the only place where it can fit) does anyone know if this could harm them?

    If you are talking a practice room of normal volume, I can't see an issue. If you are talking a room where a full band is playing, it might be. It might also be an issue moving heavy amps around where a fish tank could be knocked over.

    I had a 55 gallon tank in a room with a 500W portable PA and my stage rig. I had a cassette player plugged in to the PA and used it turned way up so I could play along at stage volume, and I never lost any fish, at least not to volume. I kept African cichlids so I would lose one occasionally to a territorial dispute, but never to excess noise, unless it was something that had a cumulative effect and was marked by chewed up fins and eyes.

    I suggest a harness for walking. Fish get right out of conventional collars.

    No problem, just have him turn down his hearing aid.

    I think if you use "soft water" it will be ok. It will absorb most of the dangerous frequencies. Don't use any chordature in the upper registers. It could create rogue waves unless you have a diver in the tank armed with a basinhousin.
