mean ""Fish" and "surplus" are homonyms, a symbol of wealth.   ?

I would have written this line ( maybe as an English speaker I was not sure if both can be right of comma ) as 

 “魚”与“余”谐音,所以魚象征着富贵。

“Yú” yǔ “yú” xiéyīn, suǒyǐ yú xiàngzhēngzhe fùguì.

"Fish" and "surplus" are homonyms, so ( or Therefore ) the fish symbolizes wealth.

I have out of habit substituted the traditional character for fish "魚".  I have seen some signs in the Boston area in simplified Chinese but in even these signs fish will very often be the traditional character "魚".
