Probably green spot algae if it is on both the real and fake plants. Keep an eye on the real plants to make sured they don't get holes in the them where the spots are. If they do it could be a deficiency.

Could be anything almost. Potassion, Nitrogen, calcium, a lot of different things but the most likely is potassium.

Don't warry about it unless you start seeing browning of the spots or holes in the plants. I have green spots on my anubias all the time and it doesn't hurt them.

Green spot algae is caused from a lack of Phopshates although I get them on the glass more than the plants.
