May 24 (UPI) -- A Swedish pet owner gave an injured fish a new leash on life with a home-made harness that allows the creature to swim around in its tank.

A video created by the Lidingo resident shows a fish tank with one of the fish suspended via two twist ties from a floating piece of cork.

The owner said the fish was injured and appeared unable to swim.

"Our fish was stuck at the bottom on the tank because its swim bladder was probably damaged," the fish owner wrote. "So we built a small harness out of twist ties to which we attached pieces of cork to help it swim/float."
