is there a type of fish that brings luck?

I heard from someone, a stranger I met at petco, who said that there is a type of fish out there ( i think chinese) that supposedly brings luck.... if you have one... it brings this kind of luck, if you have 2... it brings different type of luck... I dunno... has anyone heard of a lucky fish?

That is stupid superstition. Things can happen by coincidence. Who in his right mind would promote the sales of man-made fish like blood parrots and flowerhorns which they consider as luck fish? It's all marketing ploy and illogical. Only the gullible can ever believe such things.

The Chinese believe that goldfish bring good luck in homes and business premises although the rest of Asia the goldfish has traditionally been seen as a symbol of wealth.
btw Kum Yu (goldfish in Chinese), means gold in abundance.

A fish with tartar sauce may not bring luck, but it sure fills the bill when you're hungry. Not real lucky for the fish, though.
