Feng Shui Fish Aquarium At Home (Why & How to Have One)

Fish aquarium, as per feng shui, is considered an extremely powerful tool and there’s a pretty good reason behind that (more on the reason in a moment), but first, let me ask you a simple question.

How do you feel when you see a beautiful, serene fish aquarium with all the colorful & lively fishes in it?

Here’re your options:

A: Tensed and stressed

B: Relaxed and peaceful

It’s option “B”, Of course!

So that means a fish aquarium can – and in fact does – act as a mind relaxing tool and a peaceful mind is the first thing that you need to have if  you want to live your life with happiness, abundance & prosperity.

Moving on further, as I promised earlier, here’s what feng shui has to say about fish aquarium and why it’s considered a powerful defect remedy – and prosperity enhancing tool.

Why Fish Aquarium is Important – A view from Feng Shui Perspective

A fish aquarium, in feng shui is believed to have the capability to produce huge amount of positive energy. Not only this, a fish tank is also capable of absorbing loads of negative energy as well.

This is the primary reason why, it’s always useful to have a fish tank at home or office.

Furthermore, there’re some really awesome benefits of keeping a fish aquarium at home.

I’ve made a list of some of them below. Have a look at them.

7 AMAZING Benefits of keeping fish aquarium at home

  1. Fish aquarium generates lot of positive energy (and that’s what we want)
  2. The aquariums absorb a lot of negative energy
  3. It’s said that if a fish dies (naturally) then it’s believed to have taken something terrible (that was supposed to come to you) and has sacrificed its life for you.
  4. Healthy, active and playful fishes help attract wealth, health, prosperity & abundance.
  5. Feeding food to hungry fishes is a good karma! Make sure to get the best fish food.
  6. As per researches in medical science, observing fishes in an aquarium helps to calm human mind.
  7. If there’s a problem in some aspect of your life, then placing an aquarium in corresponding area of your home will help relieve that issue; for example, if you’re always short of money, then, keeping an aquarium in SE of living room will surely help (as SE is the money area).

  • you can place it in North

  • it’s better to go for a regular shaped one

  • Not in the bedroom

  • There should not be any negative effects. However, if you can find a triangular one with softened or curved edges then it’s better..

    Hello Master! I admire you being so active in your site. I have something to share with you and I hope you can help me. The water feature I made is not an aquarium but I believe my concern is related to your post. Just let me know if this is not the right page for me to ask for help.

    Can you please comment on the location of my koi pond water feature as I feel not comfortable with it? The pond is in L shape with 6ft the deepest and 3ft the not so deep part. Part of it is in the southeast (below our balcony)and before it curve to the other end of L is a meter wide bridge. The bridge is our main pathway from our main gate. I’ve read from a fengshui expert that a pond near or part of the house is a bad fengshui. Also, I’ve read from a certain website saying that “too much water is not good”. If those are true, any remedy to this?

    I’ve noticed that since I have this pond, I’ve started to lose income and assets and started to experience misfortune. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/07d051eaa359161aa693b81fe4c2f64653ea2b247c5f2701681b59483a56ecc1.png

  • You mean you’re moving the fish pond to South side?

  • I don’t think it’s a good idea to place a pond there. I’d suggest you to get a local feng shui consultant visit your place and check the place personally.


  • Hi Ankit,

    Send me a layout of the house with North marked on it. This way it’ll be easier for me to assess the house on Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra.


  • Hi Ankit,
    You can keep the aquarium in living room. If you believe in vastu shastra then here’s the link for your reference: http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-fish-aquarium/


  • Hi,

    Aquariums are better than bowls. At least they have space for fishes to swim and move around. However, you can start with bowl and then gradually move to aquarium.


  • Hi,

    Yeah, that’s a very small tank for 9 fishes. You can start with pair of gold fish.. also, if you want, you can add a black colored fish too making it 3. Ask the aquarium person for pairings..


  • Prasenjit Chatterjee

    Thanks a lot for your valuable suggestion .

  • Yes, that’ll be good it seems. Also, in that kitchen, try to cook facing East direction.


  • Have replied

    Dear sir,

    I am planning to purchase an aquarium in my house. I am planning to keep the aquarium in the living room mentioned the place in the image.

    Please suggest an accurate place for it and please suggest a size of the aquarium for 9 fishes and types of fishes.

    Thank you

    • Hi,

      The place for aquarium is good. For the number and types of fishes you can re-read the very same article.


  • Hi,

    It’s ok. Fishes in itself are a bliss. If you wish you can add 1 more fish to the tank.


  • You’re welcome Sir!

  • Hey Arun,

    It’s a nice move to get a fish tank.. at this moment just try to keep the fishes healthy and happy at all times..


  • Send me a sketch or layout of the house with North marked and also mark the location of the fish tank in the house.. it seems the tank is in SE of the house

  • Hi,

    As per vastu shastra the plan looks good to me. however, you need to reorient some of the W/C in toilets to North-South axis.. also I can see there’s a toilet in North of the house.. that can be removed; do get the slope and energy levels of the plot checked by a local vastu expert..

    for other bathrooms and kitchen in the house please refer the following articles:



  • Hope so! God bless you!
