With just a cork and a small piece of fabric, a Reddit user has figured out a way to keep a goldfish from going belly-up.

Leability, the user in question, figured a cork's buoyancy would be enough to keep the fish upright. Given the success of his goldfish wheelchair, it seems his hypothesis was correct. Goldfish harnesses like this have been used in the past, but none have been quite as inventive. Many Reddit users have been debating over the fish's illness, resulting in the photo getting over 1,000 comments. Meanwhile, the fish seems to still be swimming. Disabled goldfish everywhere can rejoice!
