EMERGENCY!! My eldest Dojo is at stake!!

I looked at my tank after i got home from college today... and my eldest, largest (almost 6") dojo loach is exhibiting VERY scary behaviour!!! His barbels which normally stick STRAIGHT out have gone completely limp, and he's just floating around, sometimes upside down. he's alive and breathing, but THIS is the REALLY weird part- he's swollen between his two rear fins (where i'd suppose the anus would be) and BUBBLES keep coming out of his anus. he's got gas!! what is this from?? should i get him out of the display tank??
