So, with (lots of) help from Dr. Chris Bonar, Associate Veterinarian of the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, I was able to try something that made a lot more sense to me- to remove the excess air from my fish's swim bladder.

Dr. Bonar was kind enough to e-

Dr. Bonar suggested I go under the scale, which I tried to do, but the scale just popped off. I don't think this is a big deal since she is no longer a show fish anyway, and it will grow back. (That is if she lives through my role- playing as a doctor).

Christopher J. Bonar, V.M.D. - President

Chris Bonar began his career as a volunteer at the Pittsburgh Zoo's aquarium in 1982. Later, he studied biology at Harvard University, and while at Harvard, he assisted with field research with Black Rhinos in Kenya and the biomechanics of air breathing in lungfish. He received his VMD from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine, in 1991. His post-doctoral internship was in Wildlife Medicine at the Wildlife Center of Virginia. Dr. Bonar is first author on eight peer-reviewed publications and co-author in 12 others, and author or co-author of an equal number of abstracts in scientific literature. In 2009, he became a board-certified Diplomate of the American College of Zoological Medicine. He has served as Zoo Veterinarian for the Fort Wayne Zoo from 1992 to 1994, and as Associate Zoo Veterinarian for the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo from 1994 to 2010. In early 2010 Dr. Bonar left Cleveland to assume his new role as Chief Veterinarian for the Dallas World Aquarium. In 1994 he helped found the Angiogenesis Foundation, serving on its Board of Directors since its inception and presently serving as Chairman of the Board. He is co-founder and President of Cleveland Aquarium, Inc., a non-profit corporation dedicated to building a new public aquarium in Cleveland.

However, Dr. Chris Bonar, chief veterinarian for the Dallas World Aquarium in Texas, warned that aquariums aren't the kind of attractions that turn cities around on their own.

Bonar, a veterinarian for Cleveland Metroparks Zoo until earlier this year, has worked for 10 years to bring an aquarium to Cleveland. He is president of a nonprofit group raising money and is not connected with Marinescape's plans.
"The whole concept has to be part of a mixed-use development. It's not just about a building with fish in it," he said, noting that people visit zoos and aquariums as a form of "social engagement."
