Home theater and fish tank

Is there no risk on doing quite powerfull audio system in the same room with quite larg fish tank (2500mm long, tons of water)? I know that fish live in quite noisy environment so im not worried about fish, but... what if glass breaks from more powerfull subwoofer blasts? Or it wont?

It would have to be a really powerful sub woofer to crack the glass, glass on a fish tank tends to be decently thick A) to help insulate if its a tropical tank b) due to the weight of the water pushing outwards.

I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you start to see the glass flexing haha!

Keep tabs on the fish though the vibration might be quite stressful.

... in the same room with quite large fish tank (2500mm long, tons of warm water)

I'd be more concerned about high humidity corroding the electronics.

And glass resonates at high frequencies, not low, and at volume levels that are way past what will cause pain.
