Hey yall, good evening.
I have just a quick question about my male & female angelfish. They've had what appears to be HITH on both sides of their heads. Or missing scales.

I can't figure it out. I've been monitoring them closely for about 3 to 4 weeks now. It doesn't seem to get worse, it seems as if it heals a bit, then comes back.

They swim around very actively, eat the same, and play with each other.
Sometimes theyll nudge each other or swim towards each other's sides, so could that possibly be it? Maybe scaring?
Water parameters are in a pic below, aswell as fish.

Tankmates: Juvinile firemouth, 4 inch oscar, 6 inch common pleco. 75g aquarium, cycled.

Sorry, I couldn't get the other sides of the fish. Every time I approached, they would look directly at me haha.

Note the male looks a little worse off.

What can I do?

No sorry it's not. Is that the only one coming up? That's a picture of my oscar from a couple months ago from a different question.

This time it's about angelfish haha
