A goldfish that can’t swim received a special jacket to help him float! The disabled goldfish was having a hard time until someone made him a new jacket!

The contraption and its new owner have gone viral thanks to a post from Garden Sanctuary in England’s Wolverhampton. The New York Post reported the goldfish suffers from an untreatable swim bladder disorder and would sit at the bottom of the fish tank.
