Mystery speckles

I have five medium sized clowns that have all been in my tank at least a year or more. Within the past 6 months they have developed speckles, tiny dark spots on the yellow between their stripes and noses. They don't have ick or velvet (I've dealt with those before), and they don't seem afflicted in any way, but I worry it may be a sign of some underlying issue I can't see. The water tests fine, pH6.8, and it's a three year old 29g tank, well-established. Has anyone ever seen this or know if it's bad?
