Disabled Goldfish Story on MSN today
 
Pretty neat story.

Disabled goldfish floats in a harness in viral video

This disabled goldfish has the nicest, most ingenious owner ever

A less charitable person might have rejected, and disposed of, a goldfish that couldn't swim, but not the owner of this lucky fish. Just like a piglet in a wheelchair, this disabled goldfish looks quite content floating around in a nifty little harness that's been rigged up for its transport needs. The owner commented that while the fish looks "a little silly" in its sling, "it is better than lying at the bottom of the tank all day!" Show us a goldfish that wouldn't agree with that statement.

That is a perfect owner we know anything he gets will be happy:brow::BIGangel:

It's one of many things that can be done to fancy goldfish with swim bladder problems. This little guy is a sinker who swim bladder is permanently deflated (or been aspirated), but I'm glad he's found a home with someone who is very attentive to his needs. :-D

Yea, I've seen these before. They wear down the scales where they touch a lot, but other than that it's a pretty awesome idea! I'd try it if I ever got a floater!

Yes, the disadvantage of slings is they can cause abrasions and eventually infections most unfortunately. :sad:
