For a long time, I have not been into rearing fishes nor having an aquarium here in our place because of the fact that I really cannot attend to those fishes anymore. Although, my little man really do love having pet fishes, I just always speak to him explaining how to take care of those fish but his mom just cannot. I told him that I prefer to be at his side and take care of him the whole day rather than in those fishes.
But just very recently, along with the upcoming birthday celebration of my son, he always mention to have fish-themed party. I did not say yes nor disagreed because we already had that theme last year, on his 2nd birthday. This time around, I wanted him to have a new birthday theme. So he chose other ideas. But still, he is insisting to have pet fishes at home after seeing from our neighbor an old studio rack being used as an aquarium stand. I haven’t seen it myself but our house helper mentioned one time when she and my little man went to our neighbor’s house.
I do not know what should I do but I am certain for now that I won’t have an aquarium yet here, even how small that aquarium would be.

I am already trying to fix things for our new abode even just in my mind – just a simple plans yet. Figuring out how things would turn out if these and those will be fixed here and there just to make sure that all of our stuff will all be set inside the house. But there’s only one thing that my little man is always reminding me to have near his play area at home. Do you guys can guess what is it?
It is actually his indoor aquarium. The good thing is that my hubby designed his toy cabinet and displayer with a heavy duty drawer using a fulterer pantry slide to make sure that our medium-sized aquarium will be displayed in Zach’s cabinet in his play area.
I just so wish that the cabinet won’t break and will serve its purpose for a long time even though we will put a heavy stuff there like the aquarium with water and a number of gold koi fishes inside. I will sure to share here very soon, maybe after the holidays, how this plan would come out.
Aside from the Good Luck Charm Fishes I shared in my previous post, many said that Koi Fishes do also bring good luck.
Koi Fishes for 2014
In fact, Koi fishes do not just bring in good luck but also success, courage, longevity and prosperity in life and in the family.
I personally don’t believe on this but when some of my friends shared their experiences and so I was somehow persuade to try out rearing Koi fishes. But to my dismay, pets are not allowed in my place. So I just wait then until I can move to a new place where pets are allowed. Hopefully, that would be realized before the year ends.
It’s been more than a year since I don’t have pet fishes at home. In as much as I really wanted to have even just one pet fish in a small aquarium, I still can’t do because having a pet here is a no no!
So what I did, just to treat me from drooling out of having my own pet fish, I used to go to pet shops and feed my eyes with different pet fishes. And aside from that, I also check online which fishes are in-style from time to time.
Speaking of in-style fishes, I want to share here the trending fishes for a good luck charm this coming new year of 2014.
AROWANA FISHES. This is one of the most common fishes I used to check by at every Chinese stores if they happen to have an aquarium. Yes, definitely a common one since according to Chinese beliefs, Arowana fishes are symbol of good health, wealth and power. And the most striking to Arowana fishes is that, they are believed to drive away evil or bad omens.
GOLD FISHES. Gold fishes are believed to drive in positivity to the house, or any where they are placed at. They also believed to bring in harmony to the family or in any relationship especially if there are 2 Gold fishes in an aquarium.
So far, these two fishes are what I used to hear in bringing in good luck. And still, I won’t be able to rear even one, so I hope, with this simple post, I can impart to you these ideas.
After sharing the music therapy video, I am thinking of collating musical therapy songs. One of my friends offered her cassette tape which her parents used before for a therapy session. But since I have no cassette player like the classic tascam dp-004 at guitar center, she just copied the list of titles of the songs on that said cassette tape and told me to look for downloadable copies of those songs from the internet.
While browsing over the internet the songs I wanted to download, I stumbled upon music for aquarium fishes.

It is believed that fishes love to listen to moderate amount of music and not the noisy one. For reasons, I do not fully understand yet.
