Fate had it in for a 5-year-old goldfish after the scaly fellow developed a swim bladder disorder, causing him to float upside down. Months passed but his condition didn’t let up, so his owner came up with an ingenious solution.
“I tried many ways to treat it, and it never worked,” Massachusetts-based owner Jackson Cullinan tells ViralHog. So he created a custom floating device to keep his little fish friend swimming right-side up.
“I made this life jacket based on what I had seen online,” Cullinan says. “It helps him swim and eat.”
The tubular tunic wraps around the fish’s body, holding its body in the right direction while also allowing for movement and face function.
