First of all are you certain that it was/is ick? Salt like specs?

If it was in fact in ick then you may not have kept the treatment going long enough. Are there any other fish in the tank with him? Have you added anything to the tank in the past few months? Plants? Other fish?

What symptoms are you seeing that make you think he's got bloat? It may be that this new tank is not cycled--did you use the old filter and keep that filter going in a tank with fish for the entire tank repair switch over period?
What exactly were your ammonia and nitrite levels.
0 nitrate would indicate that the tank is NOT cycled.

WHat did your fish doctor say?
