This Fish Needs A Floating "Wheelchair" to Get Around
Like us on Facebook
What if one of your beloved pets couldn't get around anymore, would you do whatever it takes to ensure he lived a happy life for the rest of his days? What if that pet was a goldfish who couldn't maintain his buoyancy for some reason?
Most of us would probably watch the poor little bugger suffer at the bottom of his tank for the rest of his life, but
YouTube user Synirr
refused to let that happen to his pet. He created a harness that serves as a sort of life-preserver-turned-wheelchair to help restore the fish's ability to float around the tank. Unfortunately, the fish still needs a little help eating, but
has that covered as well, kindly dunking his hand into the tank every day to ensure his disabled friend gets enough to eat.
