Goldfish gets custom "wheelchair" to survive

When an animal needs some help, an animal deserves that help... even if they're a little goldfish. 

Turns out... goldfish can have bladder issues that will prevent them from being able to swim upright. That was this fishy's problem... but not anymore! Someone built him a "wheelchair," that helps weigh him down and in the correct position!



"I got some airline tubing that people usually use in their tank and just placed it around the goldfish. I added some valves to the bottom of it, which acted as a ‘chair’ to prop him up. I added weights to the bottom of the ‘chair’ and something to keep him afloat on top (styrofoam), and slowly removed pieces until I achieved just the right buoyancy to make it easy for him to swim around without feeling like he’s dragging around a chair. The bottom weight is almost equal to the pull on top so it works quite well for him!"
