A GOLDFISH wears a special lifejacket to help him swim the right way up.

He has an untreatable disorder which affects buoyancy and led him to live upside down at the bottom of his tank.

Stacey O’Shea, 41, of Wolverhampton, made the lifejacket using plastic tubing and polystyrene.

Stacey runs The Garden Sanctuary from her home.

She said: “He had been living on the bottom of his tank upside down for sometime and his lovely family were desperate to get him help so he came to us.”

A video of the fish swimming happily has gone viral online.

Last March we told how a pet goldfish grew from two inches to almost ONE FOOT and was EATING all its tank mates.

Owner Alexandria Miller, 28, won Gerald the goldfish at a carnival in July 2018 when he was just two inches long.

But two years later, the nearing one-foot long monster had devoured many of his smaller tank mates and cost the owner over $1,300 in bigger tanks.
