It looks to me like it could be a bacterial infection. You can treat it with Maracyn, which is a broad spectrum antibiotic.

It could be. You can get Maracyn at Petsmart, Petco or maybe even Walmart. I don't know what size tank he's in but make sure you keep up on water changes. Water quality is very important.
