My Oranda Goldfish, use to be super active, and now anymore all she does is sit at the bottom of the tank.

I am really worried that she is dying, and I just cleaned the tank and stuff and she seemed to be more active at the beginning,

but now that she is settled back in, shes sitting back at the bottom of the tank,

Can anyone give me some ideas as to what shes doing or why shes doing it.

Shes an oranda, and I have other goldfish but they're not Orandas.

I mean maybe she could be pregnant, but i'm not sure,

I just want her to be more active and stuff, Thank You.
