‘Life jacket’ helps disabled goldfish swim again
Einstein the goldfish, who had lost the ability to swim, is afloat once more after his owner made him a special buoyant frame.
His owner, warehouse worker Leighton Naylor, was so distressed by the sight of his struggling pet, he knew he had to take matters into his own hands.
“He’s always been a fighter so when he sunk to the bottom one day and couldn’t get back up again it was a very sorry sight.
“It broke my heart to see him so helpless. He looked so depressed,” said the 32-year-old from Blackpool.
He made Einstein a “floating frame” from recycled tubing, which fits perfectly over the fish’s two-inch long body.
