This Kind Human Invented A "Wheelchair" For Struggling Fish

This human has set out to redefine the relationship between humans and fish! Most humans can be found hunting fish or eating them in restaurants. But a caring human named Synirr is doing good deeds in the fish community by building clever harnesses for disabled goldfish. Think "goldfish wheelchair".

This harness allows the fish to float around and eat food (with a little help from his human friend). No more sinking to the bottom and missing meals due to lack of buoyancy.

"My disabled goldfish scooting around in her newly redesigned sling. She has trouble maintaining buoyancy on her own. She looks a little silly, but it is better than lying at the bottom of the tank all day!"

If you're fish is having trouble staying afloat due to air bladder issues, I'd recommend checking Youtube videos to learn to make a similar harness. Also, I've heard that feeding the little guys peas helps them recover the full function of their air bladders.

I wish I'd known all these tricks 15 years ago when my poor fish Speck started having health problems. But unfortunately, that was back before Youtube was a popular resource for information.
