Goldfish have been a part of Chinese culture since ancient times. There is evidence of this in paintings and Chinese artifacts found which date back a long way.

Besides their aesthetical value, Goldfish are believed to bring abundance and prosperity and are a very revered animal by the Chinese.

Hong Kong Goldfish Tank

Goldfish tanks and aquariums in addition are used widely in feng shui, as they contain all five elements:

  • Fire: represented by the bright goldfish
  • Earth: the rocks used in decoration
  • Water: essential to any aquarium represents flow
  • Wood: decorative plants that beautifully complement the arrangement
  • Metal: often incorporated in the container itself

It is believed that a fish tank placed in the right place contributes good energy to the home and you will often see the locals shopping around for all sorts of supplies for home tanks and aquariums, including beautiful arrays of plants and rocks.
