Animals are one of those reasons that life is worth living. Since they’re cute and lovely, even the predator ones. If you look at the videos of a baby jaguar or lion your heart will melt with tenderness. Sometimes their life gets a bit harder than it should, most of the time is our fault.
But also when people with big and kind hearts take a bit of their time and help them some of the most adorable and sweet stories happen. Giving us all a bit of hope in mankind and in this world.
Taylor Dean is a 19-years old YouTuber who loves animals. As she makes educational animal videos on her channel. But recently her love for animals took a different educative direction as she shared in a post a good deed a friend of hers did.
His friend’s name is Derek, and you will fall in love with the guy without even seeing him. Since Derek, who works in a local aquarium shop recently help a customer by creating a wheelchair for her goldfish. Who suffers from swim bladder disease, a condition that makes the little guy unable to control his weightlessness in the water.
Cutest post under the sea.
Taylor posted a picture of the goldfish and his “wheelchair” making the internet snap of cuteness. Derek decided to help the customer since diet adjustments and water treatments weren’t helping the little fish. Also, because he had a little time to spare and he felt like it.
“I got some airline tubing that people usually use in their tank and just placed it around the goldfish. I added some valves to the bottom of it, which acted as a ‘chair’ to prop him up… [Then] added weights to the bottom of the ‘chair’ and something to keep him afloat on top (styrofoam). The bottom weight is almost equal to the pull on top so it works quite well for him!”

Upgraded and improved.
Taylor’s post went so viral that she has decided to keep the internet updated with the progress. As Derek has improved his sea-medical care abilities improving the fish’s “wheelchair.” In the original post by Taylor, the woman who owns the fish commented: “I’ve worked with several injured fish but him going out of his way to help this fish was just precious.”
Obviously, all of this has made people on the internet just melt even more. Sending tons of grateful and lovely messages to Derek and to the fish.
