Help: Bloated clown loach (swimming bladder?)

One loach is really bloated and having problem swimming. It seems that its swimming bladder has swollen and it's having a hard time keeping itself submerged.

Need your help, what medication should I try?

The condition got worse within a couple of days only, from good to bad.

I'm really scared now, I think I'm gonna loose this guy.

BTW, I used to name it "skinny"... just because he was really skinny... after 8 months, he's finally plump up... and the most aggressive eater of all. I thought he was on his way of being alpha... then this happened
