Is that a real seashell or fake? If it is real, then it is making your water very alkaline and raising your pH. Clown Loaches prefer soft, acidic water. Good for the mollies, bad for the Loach.

Interesting.
I asked a couple people about a real seashell in the water and was advised it should be just fine.

It is a shell that hasn't been in the ocean for decades -- it has been in my house as a decoration. I also soaked it in a 10% bleach mixture and let it dry thoroughly.

It is not the saltwater that does it; it is the shell itself. It gradually breaks down, which makes the water harder with a high pH. This is what people do in African Cichlid tanks to raise the pH.
