Many people with only passing knowledge of Feng Shui know this: Fish bring good fortune. But why and how?
There are a few reasons fish are good Feng Shui, and a few ways you can maximize your fortune with the right type and quantity of fish in your tank. Fish tank placement can also affect your luck.
Why is a Fish Tank Good Feng Shui?A fish tank incorporates all five elements inherent in Feng Shui.
1. The water in the aquarium is, obviously, the water element.
2. Plants (live plants are best, but if you find them too difficult to care for, go for realistic looking fake plants) represent the wood element.
3. The aquarium's construction contains the metal element in its structure or in the glass.
4. The fire element is represented in the aquarium's lights, as well as in the carefully chosen colors of lucky fish, like red, orange, and yellow.
Additionally, the fish and plants in your aquarium represent living chi, which makes your living environment more vibrant and your home or apartment more pleasant. They're easier to care for than other pets, and can be used to activate the chi in a specific area, since they don't move around outside the fish tank.
The Right Number Of Fish In Your TankIt's most lucky to have 9 fish in your tank, eight of one color and one of another. But you can also select fish that you like for their particular colors and shapes. Keep in mind, saltwater fish will have more vibrant colors, but may be more difficult and expensive to care for. Regular gold fish in various colors are preferred in Feng Shui; they are hearty fish in lucky colors!
Best Places for an AquariumAn aquarium is most commonly placed in the wealth corner of a home, apartment or business to attract financial success. You can also place an aquarium in the career section of your home or apartment, or in the family trigram of the Ba Gua, for good fortune. An aquarium is best placed where it will enhance, not obstruct, the flow of chi, and be enjoyed by the home's inhabitants.
