Goldfish gets customized wheelchair

金魚收到客製化的輪椅

· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

"These type of goldfish, they’ve been bred a little more than some of the other goldfish. So just like dogs and things that have some of the fancier breeding, you can get a little more health issues that can arise with fish like this."

「這種金魚比其他種金魚更常被用於繁殖。就像那些被飼養來繁殖的狗狗和其他動物,這種魚會有較多健康上的問題。」

Then - Derek had another idea. If the goldfish can’t float by itself - why not engineer a device that float for the fish?

於是,德瑞克有了另一個想法。如果這隻金魚不能靠自己的力量漂浮,何不幫這隻魚製作一個能幫助牠漂起來的裝置呢?

"I just started messing with some things and tinkering with different items and troubleshooting, and came up with the wheelchair that became famous. The goldfish wheelchair!"

「我先亂湊出一些東西,再用不同的材料進行修補、故障排除,最後想出這個廣為人知的輪椅。金魚輪椅。」

"Bits of airline tubing and airline tubing connectors. The base actually had plant weights that were wrapped around some zipties and things to actually hold it down, and the top is styrofoam pieces."

「小片的航空公司用管材和連接器。基底經過配重後,用幾條束帶和其他東西連接起來,頂端則是一小塊保麗龍。」

"He went from being upset, stuck on the bottom to be swimming around. This is the happiest I’ve seen him since we’ve had him in our possession."

「牠不再因為只能被困在缸底游來游去而難過。打從我們擁有牠以來,從沒見過牠這麼開心過。」
