Sick loach.

Hello all, I have a clown loach that isnt feeling well and I dont know exactly how to treat it. Here are the symptoms:

1. Appears to be bloated.
2. Not eating.
3. Hanging out just below the surface of the tank, very rapid breathing. Not gasping for air at the surface, but very close to it.
4. No longer active, now just stays in one spot.

I have a second clown loach in the same tank, and it is doing fine so far. I would hate to see the little fish die but I dont know what to do, any ideas?
