Some believe that fishes bring prosperity and good luck. This may have grown from the fact that there are plentiful of Chinese blessings word phrases which are homophonic with the word fish for example “年年有余 ; as such some of the people started believing that rearing fishes in one’s house will bring in prosperity.

And for those who are not suitable to have too much water in their lives may also find their luck turning for the worse.
Some New Age Fengshui practitioners apply the use of mirrors to block “sha qi” when there are pointed edges (which usually means buildings with their edges pointed towards your unit) towards your house.
