Spazzing Loach! Need help QUICK

My oldest loach, Tiger, just a few minutes ago suddenly SPAZED. He was whipping around the tank, and when he was done got caught in some plants, and was upside-down. I thought I lost him. I got him in my hand and up-righted him. My sister is holding him right now, and is saying that he's pulsing every once in a while. His gills are moving VERY rapidly. I was not involved in this, I was actually lying down about 15 feet away, not really moving, then I heard gravel moving and saw a loach zooming around. what should I do? The only changes I made to the tank was adding aquarium sea salt 1 1/2 hours before, and he seemed fine then. I added the amount neccesary for the kind of fish and tank size. What's going on? What can I do? I don't want to lose my precious Tiger!
