Clown loaches with swollen bellies

I have just started keeping fish and I have 3 clown loaches in with some neon tetras. The fish are just recovering from ich and are still having protozin treatment every 3 days. The loaches' bellies seem to have gone silvery coloured and are swollen (symmetrically). They have also been feeding more that usual. Are they ovulating? Or have they got some horrible secondary infection?
