(1) Dear Uncle Dixer: I was born in 1979. How many fishes can I keep? Also, what if the number of fish is different for my husband and son as we live together?
Answer: Since keeping the fish is for everyone, it is better to have an auspicious number of fish for the whole family instead of basing it on your own birthday.
I would suggest one black and six goldfish as the best number. If you have a big fish tank then 9 goldfish is also good. But even with a small aquarium, it is still better to have three than just one or two goldfish. You can also have 8 but since you have two men in the house it is better to have a Yang number (i.e. 9) than a yin number (i.e. 8).
(2) Dear Uncle Dixer: We are a family of two with me and my wife. I am born in 1988 and my spouse in 1990. How many fishes should I keep? I currently have two Parrot fish and 5 Oscars. Thanks in advance!
If you can add one more Parrot fish that would be perfect. Both 3 and 5 are Yang numbers and that is auspicious. Also, the total number of 8 is also a lucky number.
Do remember to retain the same number with replacement if one of them, in either group, happen to die in the future.
(3) Dear Uncle Dixer: We are a family of two with me and my wife. I am born in 1985 and my spouse in 1984. How many fishes should we keep?
Since your Ming Kua, or Trigrams of Fate, is 6 Metal and your wife is 8 Earth, you can have 8 fish with 6 being gold fishes with some white trimming and the other two with a different color. That would be a harmonious Five Phase combination for you and your wife.
