Looks like lymphocystis but can’t confirm as pics are very blue
If so, associated with both water quality and diet
If you’re using api test kits, you may have false readings and not aware.
Feed at minimum:
Nori seaweed basted with garlic extract
Spirulina brine shrimp
LRS herbivore diet
Hikari mega veggie diet
Small plankton
Mysis shrimp

Did you acclimate them to the tank from quarantine?

Appears to be lymphocytis. Bad news is there really isn’t any cure for it. Good news is that it often clears up on its own with good water quality and nutrition. Thats an awful lot of tangs. If they are fighting that can cause wounds which is an open invitation to lymphocytis.
The powder blue though looks like there’s something additionally wrong with him. Fins are frayed and looks emaciated.
Will add @Jay Hemdal to get his take.

No one fights. They were in a 75 Gallons QT for 2 months and everyone was great and now they are in a 8ft 240 everyone literally broke out at the same time 20210417_113247.jpg

I see multiple possible issues, none of it is classic Lymphocytis. The scopes has the start of HLLE. The hepatus may have mucus plugs, we see that on those after copper treatments. Not sure what the purple tang has. Are any of the fish breathing fast or off their feed?

They are breathing mostly normal and everyone is still aggressively eating
