Black spots on my percs

I notice that my TR false percs have random black "sploches" on their bodies. Any sickness out there that resmebles that, or are they just maturing?

Could also be melanism. Watch for changes in the "spots" location. They should have a somewhat symetrical shape if Turbellarians. Melanism is common in clowns which is a skin discoloration. It is somethimes the result of poor feeding or environment but not always. It is even more common it hosting or paired clowns.

Cheers
Steve
