I just bought some yoyo loaches. I had them in the bag and in the tank.. etc. The usual. When I came back to release them, 1 loach wasn't moving and was spitting out clear gluggy fluid. The water from the tank they came from was very smelly. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Thank you.

If by smelly you mean had ammonia in it....... theres every chance it had irritated the loaches gills.

In this case the fish will generate more slime coat on the gills.

This can slough into the fishes throat just through the general action of it breathing.

Likely you were just seeing this being coughed up.

Or it could have been stress slime, or even regurgitated snail guts!

Good to hear its recovering!
