Magnum 4D, Sports Toto, and Da Ma Cai punters' latest strategy in attracting luck is not in rearing the blood parrot fish (locally called feng shui fish), or the flowerhorn, but in the "4D fish".
Malaysian and Singaporean 4D lottery punters have been rearing 4D fish to forecast the winning 4D numbers. These molly fish, imported from Thailand and introduced early last year, have a single-digit number (from 0 to 9) tattooed their bodies.
Customers apparently buy 4 fish which were tattooed with his own lucky numbers. Some just buy 4 fish with random numbers. These punters are hoping that by watching the fish swim, the winning combination at the weekly Magnum 4D, Toto, and Da Ma Cai draw would emerge .
I can imagine Malaysians sitting at home patiently watching the 4D fish swim round and round the acquirium while writing down what they think would be the winning 4D numbers.

I believe that as most customers who bought the 4D fish were hoping that the fish would bring them luck and had no genuine interest in rearing fish, they would neglact the fish should they not win anything in the lottery. In Asia, people will even rear cockroaches if they can be persuaded that cockroaches can bring luck.
