little red marks, particularly on the under side of fish can be anything. sometimes they come from frequently bottom sitting, returning to the same place to rest frequently... from water quality or parasites. it could also be a pimple like spot forming (usually the come with some minor blood spotting). or, you may have detected an ulcer in it's early stages.

we look forward to seeing pics and reading your answers.
