Mr. Hot Wing is the little goldfish causing so much buzz after he was brought to Lehigh Valley Veterinary Dermatology last week with breathing and eating difficulties.
The Pennsylvania clinic says he was born without a lower jaw bone, which made it impossible for him to keep his mouth open.
The vets saved Mr. Hot Wings by performing surgery and creating a set of “custom braces” made a plastic credit card.
The braces allow the fish to breath and eat normally. According to Brian Palmeiro, the fish vet who saved Mr. Hot Wings life, the procedure costs $150.
