Black spots can often be down to diet - these should fade over time.

Yellow labs can be a mixed bag, depends a lot on genetics of your fish. I think even in the lake you can get "darker" fish, let them settle in and see how they get on. You could try some of the higher protein diets with these which may help the colouration - I used frozen foods a fair bit when I had peacocks/haps. Blood worm (irradiated is better) and brine shrimp went down well!

I bought some yellow labs a while ago, and one of them had a dark black mark that looked just like an eyebrow!

It was only the other day whilst looking at them, that I noticed that it had totally vanished, so with any luck, yours will as well.
