Blackspots next to vertical bars

Recently I've noticed some small (.5 - 1 mm)black spots on more and more it's a progressive thing that started with 1 and now 8 of my 9 (2 - 2.5") clown loaches on the top behind the first and second vertical bars. I've had them for 4 months now, they started showing up 2 weeks ago. I first thought this may have to do something with growing but the big guys at the pet store don't have them... Anyone have any ideas? The fish are all acting normal for clown loaches. I also have a oversized 45 watt UV on the 75 gal tank, so some kind of infection fungus isn't my first thought....

Thanks, -STeve
