Destress With A Fish Aquarium
Keeping an aquarium in your house at right places, according to Vastu Shastra, helps in reducing the stress caused by Vastu-related faults in your house.
Aquariums have always been considered as one of the premium forms of home décor which not only adds to the beauty but also gives an opportunity to have pets at home. A refreshing addition to the home, the aquariums are also known to have a tranquillising effect if your home is has a stressful environment.
It is said that watching fishes swim in the aquarium can minimise your stress levels and blood pressure and in turn, make you feel calm. Interestingly, this is the reason why we have always seen an aquarium at our dentist's and doctor's clinic.
What does Vastu say?
Aquariums are a good remedial measure for any Vastu-related defect in your home, which leads to increase in stress levels. Keeping an aquarium in the right direction can make your life serene.
If an aquarium is kept in a particular direction, it can help in rejuvenating the mood of the family and can also reduce stress to some extent. Several Vastu faults in the building can cause major stress and even lead to severe depression. Though aquariums are not a remedy for a Vastu fault, but can certainly help in reducing the level of stress.
It is believed that each time a fish dies, so does your problem at home. According to Vastu, it is believed that feeding a fish can add to your good activities, and as a result you will be free from most of evils at your home. Keeping an aquarium is also believed to be a good option to resolve your financial crisis.
Fishes to keep
Some of the popular species you could opt for include the Arowana or the Dragon Fish. These fishes are believed to waive off negativity. Apart from this you can add more varieties of fish to make your aquarium look bright and full. These include Angelfish, Koi, Gold Fish, Tosakin, Shubunkin, Silver Dollar Fish and Calico.
To give your tank a look of the nature, add pebbles, plants and other embellishments. Make sure you add green and blue along with other colours but, avoid the use of red as it symbolises fire, which is the anti-element of water.
The best place to keep an aquarium is the east and south-east zone of your house as this can control excessive thinking and can negate stress to an extent.
It is advisable to keep an aquarium in a place where every visitor can see it as it is believed to move the jinx of a visitor from your home to the aquarium. So, living room is one of the most common area to place your aquarium. Placing an aquarium in other rooms brings negative energies and disturbs peace of mind. It is believed that placing an aquarium in the kitchen or bedroom can cause food and sleep-related problems.
Anything that stores water has to be placed only at their designated place. An aquarium, if placed in a conflicting direction, can cause a major Vastu fault. Thus, ironically enough, the stress buster, if not kept at the appropriate place with its face in the appropriate direction, can also become a cause of stress.
Aquariums are a high-maintenance accessory. It requires time-to-time cleaning and change of water. Necessary requisites, like filters, aeration and water circulation, are required in order to maintain the tank. It's necessary to fill the aquarium with ground water as fishes survive better in natural water rather than treated regular water we get in our taps. In case you have no other option but tap water then before you fill the aquarium with water, condition it with a chlorine or chloramine remover.
Water temperature is necessary for the health of your aquarium system. Aquarium heater is essential to keep your fishes healthy. Also, when feeding the fishes make sure the quantity is apt, don't overfeed them. Healthy fishes ensure positivity.
Aquarium lighting serves two fundamental purposes. It illuminates the aquarium for the aesthetic look of the inhabitants and decorations; and also provides functional light crucial for photosynthetic life in the aquarium.
