I didn't have these dots show up on my leaves until after I added compressed CO2. The Plants seam healthy and growing at a good rate.
The only other time I saw something like this was when I added Iron a while back. Not adding iron now just Flourish. Only 1ml per week.

Water quality is good
Compressed CO2 - 12/14 ppm
Underlighted at about 2wpg
Using Flourish

Let me know if you need anymore info.

That would be green dot algae, things are just a little out of balance, I suggest upping the nutrients a little. Nothing to worry about, just watch your water parameters.
