Hi Wayne and welcome to the forum
Not sure about the spots are they on all the leaves or just some ?
Are they sweet peppers or chillies
regarding the 4 in a pot i would definatly give them a pot each
Im no expert but i had a few spots on mine so what i did was remove the leaves and burn them.The plants are doing fine now and are about a foot tall
Hope someone more knowledgabe come to your aid soon
Good luck

the leaves in the picture do not look like a fungus or virus disease to me. it looks more like sunspot burns from the heat of the sun on droplets of water on the leaves, give the plants plenty room and direct sunlight and feed regularly with a high nitrogen level feed. ventilate when temperatures go over the high sixties.
