9 Goldfish

There is a Chinese custom of having 9 goldfish in a tank. The tank is usually put in your home or place of business. You usually need 8 regular goldfish and one black one. I've no idea how this arrangement came about. But a lot of people do it.

Instead of having the hassle of maintaining a big fishtank, some people keep a picture of the nine goldfish, i suppose it represents the same thing. Drawing these pics take a lot of skill - calligraphy is definitely something that is well revered in ancient times.

My dentist has one of these pictures in his office. It was given to him as a gift when he first opened his business.
