The location of aquarium

"God right over water" is a Fengshui taboo. It causes money luck running away as water.
The character of oven is fire. Fire does harm to water. Additionally kitchen is the money source of Fengshui. If an aquarium faces oven, it is a double hurts to the money luck of the family.
3. Too high
If an aquarium is put 1.3 meter over the floor, it forms "rushing state", which washes away the money luck, in the house or apartment.
4. Too low
If an aquarium is put directly on the floor without using foot stools, it forms "cut foot" Fengshui, which blocks the helps to the family from others.

Aquarium should not be put in kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, otherwise the members of the household can be sick. The best place to locate aquarium is living room.
