Goldfish are considered harbingers of prosperity, growth, wealth, power, long life, knowledge, and peace in many civilizations around the world. In homes and workplaces, they are maintained in bowls or ponds to bring good luck. Goldfish are one of Buddha’s eight sacred symbols, representing wealth, fertility, and harmony in life. They were thought to be lucky omens that provided good luck in home situations by the ancient Egyptians, and they were domesticated by the ancient Greeks to increase good luck in relationships and weddings. Goldfish is often associated with prosperity and success in the Chinese and Japanese cultures.
