    Sometimes it can be helpful to know more about your set-up.

    Like how you cycled your tank and what your current water parameters are (ammoina, nitrite, nitrate and pH)
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    This appears to be diplopstomiasis or black spot disease which is common in pond raised fish. It is easily treated with formalin based medication.

    Diplopstomiasis looks like little black dots. these
    wider spots look more like ammonia burns.
