this is just a thought and may not be right, however it is possible that if the orfe is a female, she may be serverly egg bound. i have heard of this happening to some koi. there are egg release hormone availible, however they are expensive and may not be suitible for orfe. using the hormone is a very last resort and i'm not sure if there is a risk of death. as LHG said take the fish to a vet and see what they say.
the hormone treatment (i beleive) is only really used with very expensive koi.
this is just a thought and may not be right at all.
hope this helps
