I want to enhance the north of my home, I would like to know if you have to keep all 6 fish (for example) in one aquarium or can you split the fish into separate containers.
Is the act of owning fish lucky when the fish are together in one place or lucky just to have them in the home?
I have six fsmall goldfish and I have been told my aquarium is too small for them. But to upgrade to a bigger tank I would need a tank that would hold 60 gallons of water! (somehow I doubt this info!)
But for argument sake, can I separate the fish and put them in the north and the northeast in order to give the fish more space and also to enhance two areas.
First, the fish need to be together in 1 tank. Secondly, you need 8 red or gold colored fish and 1 black fish.
And yes, the tank needs to be larger as gold fish need more space. If you have a fresh water fish and a saly water fish of equal size, the resh water fish must have a larger space to survive. I have 9 fish (gold fish) and they live in a 50 gallon tank.
It is not easy keeping fish, but you can do other things to activate wealth that do not involve real water or fish. Go to the www.wofs.com page and scroll on the right to "wealth" and you can find other easier ways to activate it in your home.
The aquarium should be in the wealth area of the home owner. But I have never read anything from any master that said the number of fish did not matter. In any event, it sounds like the writer does need a bigger aquarium.
Thanks for the replies. I had read somewhere, or heard through Lillian Too's video about using water plus metal to activate the north's career/wealth luck. Plus activating the northeast and the northwest with water would be beneficial too.
I can't remember all the details right now but that is what I do remember.
The reason why I have fish is due to my kids wanting a pet and cats and dogs are out of the question as I am allergic so are hamsters, mice and bunnys they smell too much for my liking
I can't have a 50 gallon tank in the north in that area as it would be too big for me to house 9 fish. This area is my entrance, you would have to take a bath before you got into the lounge otherwise!
I like the fact that number of fish really doesn't matter and interesting that superstition dictates the #6 fish to enhance metal element.
I'm reading sooo much on FS right now I thing I end up crossing info and then confusing myself!
Balance is what you need, I read somewhere that the best way to apply FS to a home is balance, harmony and also so it doesn't look so blatantly feng shui'd. Is that safe to say, it makes sence.
You are so right about balance! The problem is that if a cure is placed before the problem is fixed, the cure is less and often not effective.
If there is too much of one "cure", it can create a bigger problem than it is trying to correct!
I agree about the cats, dogs, hamsters, etc - they smell - !
The aquarium should be in the wealth area of the living room, family room, etc - not in bedrooms. You can also use a figurine of a fish, a picture of fish, or a bowl of water, or a bowl with fish painted on it - all of these activate wealth - without the water and work of a fish tank.
This is from Lillian Too - the home page of wofs.com :
The Northern part of the house is characterized by the element of WATER. Water is represented by BLUES and BLACKS, so using these colors in the North will energize the intrinsic element of this zone. For instance, you could use black leather furniture with blue cushion covers. Energizing this zone with water colors improves the career prospects for the inhabitant. The North can also be energized with metal colors, which include gold, silver and white.
The awakening qualities of Northern energy are helpful to people looking to make a change in their career or in their lives. Placing a yang water feature in this zone is excellent for energizing the positive qualities of this zone. If you want to energize for money luck and greater income, a good type of energizer to use are rolling ball water features, which represent increased turnover for businesses. "
It looks like the metal fish will be a good choice. Best of luck to youi,
Yes metal fish are on my list! I have found some but kind of ugly haha, oh and spiky!
But I'm on the right track though.
As I cannot move the fish bowl to the north I have left it within the NE of my home which is in the formal living/dining room.
I hope this placement is fine?
