Clown Loach

I have four small clown Loaches in my tank. One is larger and older than the others at about 3 inches long.
I sometimes see this loach with a very large belly looking more like a rugby ball than a loach. After a day or two it resumes it's nornal size.
I am wondering what might be causing this to happen?
The other loaches do not do this.
i know that it can not be due to breeding as the loach is not big enough. Has anyone got any idea why this might be happening.
