Sensitive Shrimp

As some of you know i have 6 (soon to be more) red cherries in a small tank in my bedroom.. but something i didnt take into account was that in my room i have a fairly decent sized surround sound.. it is 7.2!! channel and pushes out a fair bit of bass.. my question is... how sensitive are shrimp to noise and vibration.. is there something i can to to muffle the noise or vibrating.. thanks for any helpfull hints and stuff

i'll be interested to see what peoples opinioons are on this. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I'm not sure about the sensitivity, but you should be able to muffle some of the vibrations by using some foam rubber between your tank and the stand.

That's what I was going to say, have something like foam rubber under your tank to dampen the vibrations being transmitted through the structure. Aside from that there's not much you can do aside from maybe wrapping the tank in a few thick towels when you really wanna crank it up.
