Your Ogon that's shy is probably just got scared from the net that you've been using to try and capture the goldfish with. She also might feel sick from the small ulcer. When you feed your Koi, toss some food around the Ogon when it eventually goes to the surface. You can try to hand tame the Ogon again by putting your hand in the water with the food. Eventually it will get used to your presence and it will eat from your hand.
