thanks for all your help!!
What is the size of your tank?
Is the tank and the fish new?
Your fish is small right now, but keep in mind they tend to outgrow regular goldfish bowls.
Also, tanks should be cycled first, in order to get some "good bacteria" in your tank. If the tank isn't cycled, it can kill some fish.
Also, do you have a heater? Goldfish don't really like heaters.
Yet again, it could be nothing. My fish go to the bottom of the tank all the time. It's just better to be safe than sorry.
