White Beard or Velvet?

I picked up this yellow angelfish two weeks ago. This is my first tank and of course didn't understand the importance of a quaratine tank until now. I have LS and LR w/ Penguine 350 and Remora skimmer. Temp 76, pH 8.2, ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates 20ppm. I have a small maroon clown and a rose bubble tip.

It looks like he is growing a white beard. He also has another spot on his bottom fin. He doesn't appear to have any other spots. He acts perfectly normal. Eats great, just not sure what is going on? Maybe marine velvet?

Click on the pictures to enlarge, thank you!

I think that if it was velvet he would've died by now. Maybe something fungal??

Maybe lymphocystis?

I'll try and see if I can find some better pictures. The fish is still acting fine and eating great.

Woke up this morning and my yellow angelfish has white spots all over him. Guess it's ick... Now my question is since I only have him and my maroon clown do I quarantine and treat both fish or just the angel?

Do both and let you DT run fallow, if I'm remembering correctly, for 6-8 weeks. After my wipeout My tank was empty for about 12 weeks

Is there a guide you recommend for quarantine tanks? Should I mix new salt water or just tank from the DT?

And just leave my hermit and anemone in the DT?

yeah, leave your hermits and nem in the DT, keeping in mind that they will need to be fed while your tank is fallow. Then go ahead and put your fish in the QT and begin treatment. here are a couple links that may help...
