Black Spotted Clown

I have a jbj nanocube aquarium for the past 5 months and as of today all water measurements are normal... for the past month or so my clownfish has some black spots that are to big to be black ich...there are less then ten of them. Aside from the spots he has been acting completly normal. The other tank members are...

blue spotted jawfish
2 hermeit crabs
2 snails
leather coral
hammer coral

Tank is 12g with 15lbs live rock and 18lbs argonite sand

Since he is acting normal I was just going to leave him alone but I wanted some reassurance. (I read somewhere that zooanthids can cause the spots...is this true?)

Sometimes Clownfish will develop dark patches as they settle into an aquarium. If it is behaving normally and does not protrude from the body, then I would not be concerned.
