Good Luck Charm Fishes

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.

I personally don’t believe on ‘lucky charms’ and everything else about being ‘lucky’ coz I know that being ‘lucky’ is just too subjective to pronounce that you are such. But as what mom said, there’s no harm and nothing will be lost if we’ll just follow beliefs. And if things go right, we might be ‘lucky’ then.

Anyways, while thinking of having, or not, new sets of fishes and a big fish aquarium for me here in my new place, a friend reminded me to take note of the lucky number of gold fishes in an aquarium. Though I haven’t mentioned to him what fishes I’ll be picking at, he, I guess, was just assuming that I’ll choosing gold fishes for my new aquarium.

Moreover, it was my first time to hear about certain number of fishes to include in an aquarium, specifically, gold fishes. With my curiosity, I really went back to him, talked and learned more about lucky numbers of gold fishes in an aquarium.

In an aquarium, the lucky number of gold fishes are eight (8) gold fishes and one (1) black gold fish.
