sounds like it may be poor water quality, do the usual checks and water changes if needed, perhaps clean the bottom of the tank to remove debri, as decaying debri removes oxygen from the water. In my early days of fishkeeping i suffered from this problem from overfeeding, undercleaning and general not knowing what the hell i was doing :). also wise to invest in some test kits to test for nitrite, nitrite and ammonia to stay ahead of any problems (if you havent already). Ive been very brief here but im sure you can find out more by doing a little digging.
