Fish Aquarium: The Vastu Master-key of Success and Harmony

Beautiful, mesmerizing and always attractive fish aquariums have very high importance in vastu shastra. The reason for such a high level of importance is attributed to the fact that a fish aquarium in vastu acts as rectification for many vastu defects.

We know that all things in this universe have certain level of energy associated with them. If we locate everything at correct place then the energy they dissipate is harmonious for us. The same logic also applies to fish aquariums in vastu shastra.

When placed and used correctly, a fish aquarium becomes master-key for success and harmony, but if used incorrectly the same fish aquarium becomes happiness ruining element. Hence, its very important to follow guidelines and principles of vastu shastra while keeping a fish aquarium in home, office or anywhere else.

As per researches in medical science, high blood-pressure, stress, anxiousness and many more diseases are cured by staring at tranquil beauty of fish aquariums. Researches also assert that if a child suffering from anxiety, observes a fish aquarium for prolonged period of time then he gets healed early.

Before we jump into fish aquarium vastu tips, let’s understand the symbolic importance of elements within fish aquarium.

Water: Water inside the fish tank represents life and if the water is moving (by pump or some other device) then it represents liveliness or positive energy flow in life.

Fishes: Movement of fishes in aquarium generates and enhances positive energy and attracts prosperity, wealth and happiness. Even Chinese Feng-Shui says that the more rapidly fishes move within an aquarium, the more positive energy (Chi) they generate and more prosperity, wealth and happiness is attracted.

Here’s a complete list of fish aquarium benefits as per vastu shastra.

  1. At least one of your problem ends permanently with natural death of a fish in an aquarium.
  2. An aquarium generates lot of positive energy and eliminates negative and evil energies from a home.
  3. Good, healthy and active fishes attract good fortune, wealth and happiness.
  4. Observing fishes in an aquarium relaxes and calms a human mind.
  5. Proving food to hungry fishes adds to our good karma.
  6. As per Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu’s 1st reincarnation (out of 9) on earth is fish and hence fishes are believed to absorb a huge amount of negative energy and radiate positive energy.
  7. If you feel that a certain problem in your office or home is because of a vastu defect then placing a fish aquarium eliminates that problem.
  8. Colorful, attractive and active fishes draw attention of guests and hence they remain more focused on fish tank. Also all the negative and evil energy they give off is absorbed by aquarium and gets converted to positive energy.

Having understood all this, let’s look at vastu tips for fish aquarium.

Vastu Tips for keeping Fish Aquarium:

  1. Keep ornamental and healthy fishes in the fish tank.
  2. Make sure that the number of fishes in the tank is nine.
  3. A combination of dragon and gold fishes is very auspicious.
  4. Out of nine fishes, keep eight fishes of the same variety and one of other. For example, eight dragon or gold fishes and other one fish can be of black color.
  5. If a fish dies naturally, please don’t panic and replace the dead fish with a new fish.
  6. Vastu for fish aquarium suggests keeping fish tank well aerated, clean, hygienic and serene. Use water filters, water pumps or water circulating devices and decorative stones etc.
  7. Make sure that only one person feeds the fishes regularly.
  8. Locate the fish tank in living or drawing room of a home as per fish aquarium vastu shastra. No other location of a home must have a fish aquarium.
  9. Within living or drawing room, locate the fish aquarium in North or East directions.
    Before you get super exited and rush to place your new or relocate your existing fish aquarium in living room, we suggest you to read our article on best location and arrangement of items within a living room.
  10. Vastu shastra recommends not locating fish tank in kitchen or bedroom as it causes food and sleeping related medical hassles.

  • jeevika

    hi,
    i have only one blue crown betta fish is it is auspicious fish

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Jeevika,

    As per vastu shastra, keeping 9 fishes is the best.

    The best combination is to have 8 goldfish or Arrowana fish (aka dragon fish) and one black colored gold fish (aka black moor).

    By the way this is the simplest and the best arrangement to attract wealth and prosperity.

    Thanks,

  • p vinay kumar

    It is generally said that we should not keep any weights or objects in NE corner of the house as per vasthu. so is it correct to place the aquarium in NE corner

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi P Vinay Kumar,

      An aquarium in vastu shastra is considered a tool (and a very powerful one). Also the NE part is ruled by Water element and aquarium is a tool with lot of water in it. Hence there’s no problem.

      By keeping weight we mean like heavy machines, heavy furniture etc.

      Thanks,

  • Shayl Nair

    We dont have a living room or a drawing room so we keep it in bedroom and its facing towards sun rise and is at the right side of bed, please suggest what to do Also it is a small aquarium with pairs of 4 breeds of fishes.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Shayl,

    As per vastu shastra, you cannot keep an aquarium in bedroom. It leads to sleep related disorders and many other related health problems.
    Please keep it outside the bedroom.

    Send me the sketch of your home for further analysis.

    Thanks,

    • Suja

      Sir
      My house is facing northeast and livingroom is also in the northeast with thedoor facing south west. So were should i keep the fishtank? Is it okay to keep it in NE direction facing SW ?

  • Gurvinder Singh

    Hi, need your help. We have kept an aquarium with 8 Gold fishes and 1 black fish in NE direction in our GM’s cabin in Oct/Nov 2014. First 20/25 days it was ok and settled as only 1 or 2 fish died so we thought that it will be natural. But after staring of winters suddenly a lot of fishes starting dyeing on alternate days. We have tried to do everything (like putting an heater rod into it, putting extra pump, change of food etc ) but couldn’t control it.

    Can you please suggest that what can be the possible reason for this.

    shall we change the type of fishes. Pls suggest. Thanks !

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Gurvinder Singh,

    Is there any beam or any heavy structure above the fish aquarium?

    Also, fishes tend to die due to improper water in aquarium.
    For example:
    1. While changing water of the aquarium (which must be done regularly), if the temperature of new water is different than that of the older water, then fishes tend to die.

    2. The quality of water matters for fishes. Fishes can die if there’s no – or very less – oxygen in water.

    Send a rough sketch of the cabin for further analysis.

    Feel free to ask further questions.

    Thanks,

      Thanks,
      Admin

  • Gurvinder Singh

    thanks a lot for your advise. Have uploaded a picture of the room where it has been placed above the cupboard on the NE direction. Above it we have placed 2 shelves where we have kept photographs.

    the picture taken from the entrance of the room.

    Would request you to please take a look and advise.

    Thanks !
    Gurvinder

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    HI Gurvinder Singh,

    The aquarium seems to be small for that number of fishes. This size of aquarium usually houses 2-3 fishes.

    Also, I suggest you to get help from a fish expert regarding quality of water. As far as my knowledge about fish aquarium is concerned, I think boring water is the best.

    By the way, since how long you guys have been using this cabin?

    Thanks,

  • Ramegowda

    Hi,
    Entrance of my home is east and it has only kitchen and hall, there is no bedroom, so plz tell me where to keep fish aquarium.

  • Rohan Shanbhag

    i had kept fish tank in NE direction but i kept only two fishes is it ok

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Ramegowda,

    As per vastu shastra, you must keep aquarium in the hall/living room in the NE corner/part.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Vijaya,

    Till the time the aquarium is in the NE part of living room it’s ok.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Rohan,

    As per vastu shastra, you must have more fishes in an aquarium. However, since fish aquarium generates positive energy, there’s nothing inauspicious about keeping 2 fishes.

    Where have you kept the aquarium? If it’s in the living room its fine, else please move it there.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • Ramegowda

    Thank u for advice and one more thing, can I keep a bowl with 2 golden fishes and one black fish is it ok or not???

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Ramegodwa,

    As per vastu shastra, you must have more fishes in an aquarium. However,
    since fish aquarium generates positive energy, there’s nothing
    inauspicious about keeping 2-3 fishes.

    Thanks,

  • meghna

    Sir I have vastu defect in bedroom which is in north east..so can I keep an aquariam there..I have one crocodile fish and four goldfish.pls help

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Meghna,

      As per vastu shastra, a bedroom in NE is considered inauspicious (if it’s used as master bedroom). You can read more about it @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-tips-for-pregnancy-conceiving/ and @http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-tips-marriage-happy-married-life/

      Also, keeping aquarium (or any other life form) in bedroom causes sleep related disorder, mental tension, insomnia, depression etc. Hence please refrain from keeping aquarium in bedroom.

      Please send me a sketch of your home for further analysis.

      Thanks,

  • Hemanth Kumar

    Hello Sir,
    My house is west-facing and the living room in the NW part of the site with the door facing west.
    Is the door placed correctly?
    Where should I place the aquarium in the living room? Currently it is in the SE corner of the room with a beam running on the top.

    Also, recently I had to build a sump in the NW corner of the plot – what is the remedy for this defect? Earlier, I used to get water to the old-sump which was in the NE part of the plot – but due to low-water pressure, we never used to get water. Currently, this old-sump is filled with water. With building the new-sump, it has solved the water problem but casing issues.

    Regards
    -Hemanth

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Hemanth,

    Keep the aquarium in NE of the living room; keeping the aquarium in SE with a beam on top may kill the fishes and leads to negative energy in the house.

    The sump in NW corner leads to legal matters and feeling of loneliness. You must close the sump and make it at the West (center).

    You can send me a sketch of your home for analysis.

    Thanks,

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi UDAYA CHENTHIR.K,

    You can swap TV and aquarium, that way aquarium will be more towards NE.

    For burning garden waste use the SE (“Agni”, “Fire”) corner. However, NW is also ok.

    Thanks,
