A 32-year-old pet owner in Seoul, South Korea built a unique contraption to help his disabled pet goldfish swim

The man built the device which works as a 'wheelchair' after many of his pet goldfish died due to swim bladder disorder, which causes fish to float upside down or to sink to the bottom of their bowl

The owner Henry Kim, who is a fashion designer, is an underwater enthusiast and keeps over 20 goldfish in three different aquarium tanks in his home in Seoul.

Henry decided to build the unique contraption, which he calls a 'wheelchair', by using plastic components to create a floatation device after a lot of research on Google and mixing up what he learned from different YouTube videos and online tutorials.

According to the 32-year-old, while goldfish with swim bladder disorder only live a couple of months, one of his fish has lived to be five months old thanks to this device.
