Fin rotts are most caused by stress. This matter should be dealt with ASAP for it can spread quickly through out the fin, making it fall off and CAN KILL your fish.

Where is your stereo located? Unless its right in front of your tank or on top of it, vibrations from the bass would be the reason to stress out your fish

your p's fins are rotting probibly because of REALLY BAD water quality. thats usualy what causes it. do a 40% water change and clean your filters, add some aquarium salt too.

the bass from your stero can strees out your fish. they have good hearing and are really sensitive.

Movement or vibrations of the glass (caused by tapping it, for example), will send tiny pressure waves through the water. These are picked up by fish's lateral line, and if they are powerful enough, they can cause an involuntary muscle contraction, which causes the fish to move suddenly (defense mechanism). Too much of this can cause stress.

I am not sure wether high volume music/bass stress out fish, but you definately know it can't be doing any good... I suggest keeping the stereo at moderate volume levels if it is the same room as your P's.
