You are awesome for doing that!!!!!!
I do not have the book of faces...it won't let me read it.
This is more than likely lymphocystis. More info on it here.
FWIW copper has been rumored to contribute to lymph infections. Generally speaking, you do not want to keep your fish under any treatment for longer than necessary.
I agree with Austin.
Lymphocystis commonly manifests in angels and butterfly fish (other species too!), that have been held in copper. This is the fish equivalent of "the cold". Not overly concerning in its own right, but does indicate underlying immunosuppression.
As Austin suggested, best to get this fish out of medication ASAP and start rebuilding the immune system. Live foods, fresh greens, probiotics and B12 will all help your fish recover and live and long, healthy life!
