my fish is sick! anyone know whats wrong? pic included

my fish has become sick the past few days but i dont know what is wrong. he has red blemishes all over him and his eyes are red rimmed. i tested the water and the only thing that was outside the normal range was that the water is hard... but i dont think hard water would do this to my fish.
can anybody help me?

I'm not really one to try and answer a medical question. But I did a search and it sounded like it might be hemoraghic septicemia, if this is what it is, It is caused by a bacterial infection in his bloodstream. First change 50% of his tank water. Also add aquarium salt to his tank. Follow the instructions on the label.

here's a link about hemoraghic septicemia - Hemorrhagic Septicemia

If he has hemorrhagic septicemia he will need an antibiotic. "Maracyn 2" is the usual suggested treatment. It's available at most fish stores.

?Tank size? how many fish?

BTW this should be in the Tropical Fish Disease forum please make a post there and follow the guid line they'll help. http://www.fishforum.com/tropical-fish-diseases/

Like I said this is only a possible problem, I would do the water change and and some salt.

Get more then 1 opinion, not for you or me but for you fishy.
