okay, I have these two yellow labs in a cycled tank of 55 gallons w/ all the water parameters in check. Nobody is stressing them and they go about their business everyday.. with 10 other M cics.

BUT... They have super fine black spots on them. These dots are concentrated and make up small funky spots. (looks sorta like an OB female peacock spot). One has a small spot on it side by the anal fin and the other has a big one obove his upper lip. Like he ran into a cigarette ash. Strange..

From what i looked up is that it some harmless bacteria or fugus. I looked at all the websites. But i want to make certain.. Thanks for any advice..

They are still quite active in defending their pecking order.

sounds like 'black spot'...it's a parasite...but i don't think that it's a dangerous one. check the 'fish diagnosis sites' thread in this forum.
