First off, welcome to the forum! We'll do everything we can to get your little oranda back on track.
You should switch her food away from flakes as they are notorious for giving fancy goldfish trouble with digestion. The New Life Spectrum pellets are the best pellets. You could try her on those first, but if she doesn't get better then you can try making gel food. I've got a few recipes, but try the NLS first. Garlic guard is good as it contains a little more garlic which will entice her to eat.
The next thing I'm going to ask for is the water parameters and tank parameters. We need pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and hardness if you can get it. Physical size of the tank and specs of the filter are also good. Bottom-sitting isn't a good sign. Food is probably part of the problem, but we also want to eliminate environmental factors, too.
