Water is one of the basic and very important elements in Feng Shui. This is probably the most important symbol of wealth and money. Fish is alsoa very popular talisman in Feng Shui. In Chinese the word “yu” has two meanings – “fish” and “abundance”. The combination of these water elements will certainly add positive energy to your house and bring good luck, success and wealth.
An aquarium with fish is an excellent combination of these important elements. It is important that the water in the aquarium is always clean, oxygenated and is in motion. It is desirable that the aquarium is illuminated by natural light; that is why it should be located near the window. An aquarium with stagnant and stuffy water is unlikely to have a favorable in your house.
According to the laws of Feng Shui the combination of two elements – “water” and “fish” must be implemented so that the fish is able to live freely as in its natural habitat. Therefore, it is necessary to place small stones, sand, shells, algae and plant grass in the aquarium.
The quantity, type and color of fish are also important. It is better to keep in the aquarium goldfish, as associate them with fortune. And there should be eight golden and one black fish. The eight golden fishes signify growth and prosperity, the black one signifies defense.
The most popular fishes, according to the laws of Feng Shui, bringing prosperity and good fortune, are considered the Arowana and Flowerhorn. Arowana looks like a dragon, and a dragon in China is a symbol of strength. These fish have been known for a long time, but they became popular around 100 years ago with the appearance of aquariums. It became possible to keep them in house conditions. Flowerhorn is more an ornamental fish, the result of crossing several breeds.
An aquarium with fish will not only decorate the interior, but will also improve mood and the overall atmosphere in the house. Place the aquarium in the south-eastern part of the house (according to the laws of Feng Shui this is the zone of wealth) and then your house will be filled with happiness and abundance.
