Does Different Types Of Music Change A Fish'S Behaviour?
Posted 25 November 2009 - 12:30 AM
Question: Will playing different types of music change a male beta's behavior?
Hypothesis: If I play Different types of music, then latte the betta will react differently because of the vibrations of different music.
1. Observe fish before music is played
2. Turn on music (rock,rap,hip-hop,classical,and country)
3. Observe fish
I'm going to start presumably on November 28 2009
Feel Free to add any suggestions

Said nothing about betta fish though just fish in general.

What kind of samples of fish will you be using? Will you use the same fish for each type of music? How do you intend to define each type of music to make the experiment repeatable? Do you have a working definition of the types of behavior that you might see? Some things you might want to define would be rapid movement, seeking shelter/hiding, casual open display in the tank, etc. This will mean that the observations will not just be random thoughts at the moment but can be fit into a framework where you can look for the change in frequency of each behavior type associated with each type of music.
The only way to really learn is through people having the interest to experiment. Designing the experiment can be quite a challenge though.

But that's conjecture on my part.
Sometimes in the afternoon when I am off duty and the wife is at work I like to put a bit of classical music on and I have always liked to think my fish like it to I have observed my Clown loaches playing and swimming vigorously when I put the radio or a cd on, but then again there always doing that
Miss Dib Dabs don't be embarrassed about singing to your fish I make clicking noises to my clown Loaches when Im going to feed them My wife is thinking of calling the men in white coats
