Fishes and fish tank belongs to water feature which represents wealth in feng shui. The location of the fish tank and how many fishes in that fish tank is same as important as water fountains.

Where to place the fish tank and how many fishes in the tank are very considerable when we are doing the feng shui practice. The movement of the fishes is like the running water which can activate the energy in that area. The position of the fish tank should be in the auspicious area which lets people have beneficial from those auspicious chi. Otherwise, the ominous chi can be triggered by the misplacing of fish tank.

Some feng shui consultants always tell people to place fish tank besides the door, which is wrong. In order to reach the accuracy to boost the money luck, the placement of the fish tank needs the actual measurement and calculation; here we are going to talk about the requirements for the numbers of fishes according to different persons.

First the highest point of the fish tank can’t be over the height of a standing adult’s heart position. Because the heart belongs to fire element, the water element would destroy the fire element and cause heart disease. In the same time, the lowest water level of the fish tank can’t be lower than a standing adult’s knees. Because the knee belongs to earth element, the earth element would destroy water element and cause the knees problems.

Then you need to know what gua number is. The gua number is calculated by the year of you born. It can determine one person’s auspicious and inauspicious directions and locations. The best location for one person is called Sheng Qi which can be found by your Gua Number. Therefore the best location for your fish tank is at your Sheng Qi position.

  • If your gua number is 2, 5 or 8, you belongs to earth element. The propitious number of fishes for you is 2, 7, 5 and 10. In feng shui, 5 and 10 are the earth element. 2 and 7 are the early heaven number of fire element, which supports the earth element.
