The patches to me look a bit like HLLE starting on the angel. If there are no other symptoms - that would be a consideration(In the angel only). It's unclear where in between the fish were added. Are the lesions on both sides

PS the tang lesion is extremely odd - almost like an artifact. The copper band looks like a fish just obtained with fin damage. It seems (to me) unlikely that the 3 fish issues are related

I agree, the angelfish has HLLE. The copperband seems to have some injury to its tail. I don't know what the triangular mark is on the hepatus tang.
