Thought clown loaches, as they are scaleless, should not put too much salt or medication.

Anyway, sounds like dropsy. So far I have very little success with dropsy, but typical advice would be od does anti-bacteria medication, while the other school would say keep water parameter healthy (.e.g change 50% twice a week) and hope that the kidney is not stressed further and recover.
