A goldfish had surgery and lived!

A 10 year old goldfish underwent surgery in Australia to have a tumor removed. It was succesful and the fish is expected to live a very long time.

A friend sent this story to me, but I can't figure out how to post a link. If you want to read about it, read what is trending on buzzfeed.com US edition.

I hope it isn't a hoax, but if not, how cool!

For some reason I couldn't find the address to do it. It kept going to the overarching provider's address. Every time I tried to copy that, it would open a new page, so I did the best to try to describe how someone might be able to find it.

Thanks for finding the great article! I emailed my vet school daughter the link. It had great pictures and the info about the gel sponge.
