That looks like columnaris to me on the angel. I would treat with salt or with a combination of furan 2 and kanamycin.

columnaris?! and i wouldnt be able to do much salt due to the corydoras i have in there as well, would i?

Also i have metroplex and garlic guard as well as focus from seachem as i currently use that product. Plan on soaking them up in frozen food.. unless you have better suggestions

Metroplex isn't the right antibiotic to treat columnaris. Garlic guard is worthless- garlic is bad for your fish (according to scientific research, not anecdotal evidence)

Columnaris (caused by flavobacterium columnare) is a fairly common bacterial infection in fish. It looks kinda like fungus.

Corydoras in my experience tolerate salt much, much better than conventional wisdom would suggest.
