32-Year-Old Genius Builds Flotation Device for Disabled Goldfish

Due to things like congenital disabilities, unfortunate circumstances, or a fight for survival, animals can have limitations. Humans have spent a lot of time, money, and effort to help as many handicapped critters as possible.

A 32-year-old fashion designer named Henry Kim loves one thing as much as fashion: goldfish. He has three different aquariums in his house in Seoul, South Korea, that is home to over 20 beautiful goldfish.

Kim noticed that several of his goldfish were dying due to a swim bladder disorder, which caused the aquatic creatures to sink to the bottom of the tank or float upside down. Thanks to his design skills, Henry was able to create a unique “wheelchair” for his fish.

Using plastic components, he made a floatation device that helped the fish stay upright and swimming just like they would if they were healthy. Usually, fish with swim bladder disorder live for a month or two, but thanks to Kim’s design, his pets are living nearly three times as long.
