Cysts on Pterophyllum Scalare Angels

Some of my Adult Angels have developed cysts about the size of pinheads in their gills and some on the body, the body ones are brown in colour with white heads and the gill ones are a pinky-brown.
At the moment I am treating with Malachite green and copper as I don't know what it is.
Can anyone help Please.

Hi french47

I'm going to move this thread into the Tropical Fish Diseases section to increase your chances of getting the answers that you need.

In the meantime, can you give us some more information? Tank size? Inhabitants? Water parameters? Have you introduced new fish to the tank recently?

If it's not Ich, the first thing that comes to my mind is a viral infection called Lymphocystis. Google image and see if the early stages look similar to what you're describing on your fish.

These are the Angels, only 3 infected at the moment, the main infection area is around the gills just at the opening and around the base of the pectoral fins
