Feng Shui Aquariums and Fish Tanks

I have a recent question from one of my readers

I have just bought a feng shui fish tank and have kept 2 goldfish and one black one. Could you tell me if the south east corner is the right position for my feng shui fish tank?

Anything that moves including goldfish will activate chi and enhance the energy levels in your home.

Keeping a Feng Shui aquarium or fish tank in the South East corner is a traditional Chinese cure to activate wealth. Some traditional practitioners advise that nine orange fish be kept together with one black fish. The black fish is symbolically said to absorb any negative chi that may otherwise be directed at you.

However, I’ve also known practitioners to recommend eight orange fish to one black one. If you can can’t fit eight orange fish into your Feng Shui fish tank try three orange to one black (as multiples of three generally manifest or result in action).

Some practitioners also recommend adding nine coins to your Feng Shui aquarium or fish tank again as a wealth enhancer. But, you’ll have to ensure that the metal or the coins don’t harm your fish.

I’d say don’t worry too much about how many fish in your aquarium. The important thing to remember is that the activity of the fish will help activate the life force of your home.

I would also recommend that you keep the water bubbling by investing in a small pump as this will activate chi further and keep the water from becoming stagnant. If this is not possible, make sure you change the water on a regular basis and keep it squeaky clean to avoid the build up of ‘yukky’ green algae.

You’ll notice that Chinese restaurants generally place Feng Shui fish tanks and aquariums at the entrance, usually in the career (north) area of the ba gua. This is thought to encourage a steady flow of customers into the restaurant and boost cash flow.

They further enhance chi in this area by shining lights into the fish tank which throw out watery shadows over the walls of the room creating mood and atmosphere – very effective indeed!

Let me know how you go with your Feng Shui fish!
