The small irregular black spots will disappear after a while. Supposed to be a parasite from when they were kept in holding ponds, but the parasite will not reproduce in your inside aquarium.

Yes, I have read that black spot disease is a harmless parasite common on a lot of wild caught fish as well. A few of the wild Metriaclima I got recently have it and have been just fine. But pictures would go a long way in confirming that it is what yours have.
