VERY tiny black spots?

Well, I've noticed a few very very tiny black dots on my Persica. I was just wondering if this is an illness or maybe he's just dirty? He came from a local fish store and had a fairly big bubble nest in his bowl there before I bought him, so it seems as if he is fairly healthy.

There are 3, and they're on his body only. None on his fins.

I will try tomorrow when I'm at my Mom's house again. They may be too small to see in a photo though. I'm not sure.

Okay. For now, if they're that small, I'd suggest keeping a watchful eye for any unusual behavior or if the spots spread. They may be specks of dirt or even the start of a color change.
