    I'm thinking of getting an equipment rack, but the only place it can go in the front room is where the sub is currently. This means moving the sub under a small table. Thing is I have a fish tank on top of this table.

    Does anyone know how this might effect the fish if at all?

    I have been known to play my sub so loud my neighbours feel it and my fish are not bothered at all :blush: :devil: .
    My clown loach is over 10 years old so it can't be too bad for them.


    I don't think you will do any harm as the sub wont actually touch the table to transfer vibrations directly.

    can't be done :laugh: I used to have a green severum that was as big as your hand. He would just lock his jaws on big plastic plants and drag them backwards across the tank, the plants weren't even in his territory he just did it to annoy me. :laugh:

    You should've got that on camera! :rotfl:

    Ours have a pot plant in the corner of the tank, the fish seem to enjoy forcing themselves to swim down the middle and then get stuck! Needless to say most of the plant isn't in the pot now! :laugh:

    Maybe I'm unlucky but we've twice had the contents of the fish tank (not the fish) dumped onto the carpet when a valve got stuck open in the external filter - I'd be wary about a 'live' amp sitting under all that water.

    Like mylo our fish don't seem overly bothered with music in our room.

    Regards

    Joe

    Your right, I am a tad wary of it, but the filter is internal on mine and the tank is to the right of the table the sub would be under the left part, so its not directly above it. Unless the fish figure out a way of movng the tank - tho I wouldn't put it past them!
