So they are widely used as pet fishes in the aquarium, paintings or pictures or kept as figurines to attract success and prosperity. It is said that the fishes saves us from danger and bad luck. There are many types of fishes used to create positive energy and abundance in Feng Shui like the Arowana, Flowerhorn, Dragon Carp or Gold Fish. However, it is advised not to place your aquarium in the kitchen and in your bedroom as this can cause money problems and illnesses.

Arowana Fish the most famous and powerful fish used in feng shui. In Chinese, the Arowana is called Kam Lung Yue which means Golden Dragon Fish. It has distinct dragon like barbels and large shiny scales that resembles the powerful and mythical dragon. This Feng Shui Symbol is normally seen as biting a coin in its mouth sitting on a bed of coins. It has made its name as the ‘fish of the rich and famous’ because one has to pay a huge price for a live fish. The arowana as a Feng Shui symbol signifies supremacy, prosperity, wealth, strength, good luck, happiness and power. It is also believed that placing this fish helps to drive away evil spirits and bad luck.

Placing the Flower Horn in the North is said to improve career luck whereas placement in East can result in the enhancement of family well being.
Dragon Carp Symbol
The dragon carp symbolizes high ambitions, wealth and success. The Golden Carp is known for its legendary courage to swim against rapid currents and is therefore a symbol of perseverance, achievement and career success. According to some the carp turns into the revered Celestial Dragon when it makes a final leap across the Dragon gate. Keeping this symbol brings literary and scholastic luck to students and excellent career luck to working people.
Keeping 9 live carps in the aquarium (8 red ones and one black) is said to absorb all bad and negative energies and bring abundant wealth to the household. Students can keep the dragon carp on your study desk or in the Northeast corner of your study room for obtaining good grades. Placing this Symbol on your work desk in your office or in the North corner of the desk helps to advance in the career ladder.
9 Gold fishes are kept in an Aquarium out of which one is black for removing
bad energy from the environment. A dead fish signifies bad luck absorbed that
otherwise would have caused troubles at home. This fish can also be put in
pairs. A Double Fish is a good symbol to keep for harmony in relationships. A
double fish painting or statue will enhance your marriage corner. It represents
love and happiness as well as abundance of wealth. It’s a great enhancement for
the wealth energy center in your home and office.
