Since your fish is very new, this could well explain the reason for his fungus. Moving fish from store to tank can be very stressful and cause the outbreak, plus fish from the store are often in ill health to begin with. Is your other angel new as well? If so, there may indeed be high ammonia and/or nitrites in your tank. Any time you add a fish, you should check your levels with a liquid test kit for several days after the new addition. If you don't own a test kit yourself, most local fish stores (referred here on the site as LFS) will do testing for free. Don't hesitate to use this aid until you can get a test kit to have on hand.
And it is quite alright not to know about all the fish terminology! I have learned by trial and error and by asking questions. So continue asking away! We all hope the best for your angel.
JoeShmoe - I just wanted to double check that it is table salt you are supposed to use - I've never heard of using table salt for aquarium use. I use aquarium salt for all my fish needs, but I also don't know the half of fishkeeping yet!
