Stocking a Feng Shui Fish Pond
You probably know if you read this site often that water is one of the key elements in Feng Shui. Because it is a living, moving force, it promotes the positive flow of chi and if placed correctly can attract wealth and prosperity. If you add fish, in addition to water, to many areas of the Ba Gua, you are adding more positive, life-affirming chi
Creating a Fish Pond
A fish pond is a bit different than simply having a fountain or other water feature. Ponds are often thought of as stagnant, which is not good Feng Shui. But when you add fish, it automatically becomes a vital, moving environment. Most ponds can also be designed to incorporate a small fountain and you'll need a filter to keep the pond clean for the fish, which automatically gets the water moving.
Making a pond in your yard is a fairly easy project. Check with a local nursery or home improvement store and they usually have instructions and even kits to make your pond. New York City dwellers, consider a small rooftop pond to go with a rooftop garden.
Placement of Your Pond
The placement of your pond is important. You want it positioned in your wealth corner to attract prosperity. Ideally, you will be adding plants to create a relaxing “water garden” space for a retreat. Be careful not to place your pond too close to existing trees as falling leaves will create debris and the tree could stifle the flow of positive chi from the pond.
Stocking Your Fish Pond
Goldfish or koi are best for your pond as their gold color will attract good fortune. They also adapt well to constructed fish ponds. Ask an aquarium store or the nursery how to best acclimate your new fish to their pond. You will want to add plants because they not only add more living chi, they provide oxygen in the water, which the fish need. The plants also provide cover from other animals.
Enjoy Your Feng Shui Fish Pond
You have now created a peaceful oasis to relax and activate positive chi. Not only have you enriched your space with living things, you are proactively attracting good fortune into your life.
