Disabled goldfish swims around in cute goldfish sling

The goldfish owner who uploaded this video in 2010 says, "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!" (via Boing Boing Google+ community)

    this is really heartwarming and a great way to start the day, thanks for posting Xeni. I better quit while I’m ahead and pull out my ethernet cable.

    Consider my heart officially warmed! Awwwwr. Along similar lines, I encountered this video last week; a tutorial on how to fix a broken butterfly wing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah0SBALIc0o&feature=pyv&ad=4907350717&kw=butterfly%20wing%20repair

    That sling NEEDS a little boyantly-neutral balloon at the top.

      If you look very closely you’ll see there’s a piece of string or thread attached to the top of the sling. I would imagine that in turn is tied to the top of the tank or a floating device.

         I didn’t see it the first time, now I see it.  (I actually was wondering just how it was so perfectly balanced…)  This definitely should have a little balloon.

    i believe the correct term is buoyancy challenged. ;-)
