Does the bloating cause the fishes scales to stick out off it’s body? If so, it may have dropsy which is treatable with medication. If not, it may be septicemia, which can be treated also, but is more often then not, fatal. Depending on the age of the fish, it could be systemic organ failure due to old age. (When the organs shut down one by one it causes a back up of body fluids.) Without more information I can’t pinpoint an exact illness. Regardless, you should get some medication to try and treat it fast.
