Man makes 'wheelchair' for pet goldfish

Fish suffers from bladder disease

A Texas man helped a goldfish with a bladder disease by building it a custom "wheelchair."

UPI reports a customer brought his fish that suffers from swim bladder disease to a San Antonio aquarium, and n employee, Derek, made the device, which helps the fish remain upright.

Derek's friend, Taylor Dean, tweeted a photo of the fish and a text message from Derek explaining the invention.

"Wasn't able to hold himself up right and was stuck on the bottom. Not anymore! Thought you would get a kick out of it," Derek wrote.

The "wheelchair" is made from airline tubing, Styrofoam and weights.
