Is there anyway to get a picture of it? I too have pepper corys and they are kind of speckled, however I believe you!! lol Please tell us about the tank size and what you have. And your tank testing results. It really help with diagnosing and helping you.

Does it look like 'Ich' or are the spots fluffy?

Have you added any new fish?

Time to do some testing I'd say...
