Question Wierd black spots on fins

Okay well i was just looking at Fishy. Like very closely lol. So i noticed on his tail fins and the fins that hang down,i see wierd black spots. Almost in a line it seems like. Not sure what that is. Also i can see some kinda redness in the bottom fins,but only on one side. I do have one pic where you can see the black spots,i gotta play with picasa though so i can zoom it and you can see it. I couldnt get a pic of the redness though. Ill work on getting a pic up but for now,any ideas?? Thanks!!

Hmmm...I have no idea what that could be. Is he acting normal? If so, just keep an eye on him and see if anything changes.

Yah he seems normal. Chasing my finger,flaring,eating. From what i read online it could parasitic. I did buy that jungle labs lifeguard yesterday,think it would help any? I also have aquarium salt. Other than that i read online to do like massive water changes cause these worms can live in the gravel and hard to get rid of. I hope its not that! Urgh...

Its good that you have the lifeguard just in case. I walked to Petsmart this morning and I looked at the cories. :) They had albino cories, emerald cories and peppered cories. They were so cute!! They had a gravel substrate but it was the small, pebbly kind. They were fun to watch.

Kim is trying the antiparasitic food for her fish right now.I got an airstone to try in my tank today but I need a check valve for it. Didn't know that til I got home and read the directions. They don't tell you stuff like that at the lfs. :(
