I don't know if different fish are more sensitive or not, but I have a Betta that seems to be very sensitive to electronics, especially ones that vibrate or hum.
However, this Betta, seems to like TV. He has a favorite corner he spends most of his time making a bubble nest, but when I put a DVD into my computer screen, he plant himself right in front of the screen. Then he gets bored and chases himself on the reflective sides.
So what seems to be a happy medium is to put the computer far away and the screen at an angle on a portable table. I just roll the thing to a distance we can both agree on
