Usually red spots are from hemorrhaging. You are not having high ammonia or nitrites are you?

hard to see anything in the first pict but looking at the second pict even though it's blurry until I blew it up.
you can almost make out a thumb print , this usually happens when catching a large fish in a net and griping the fish the thumb wraps around the lower belly to hold it in the net , you see this more with the large freshwater fish , it's not as common with saltwater fish as handling practice is a bit more gentle but like anything it can still happen ,


it will probably go away over a few weeks.
