My Angel fish has a brown growth on it. Looks like a fungus. Got stuff from dealer. They didn't survive. This is now 4 i have lost. No other fish are affected. 135 gallon tank. Water ph is all fine what could be wrong

Your opinion of fine and the angle fish opinion of fine might be different. I'm assuming by fine you mean a ph near 5.5, soft, and around 80, with nitrates not going above 25?
If it's only affecting the angels it could be poor genetics and a tumor and not a fungus. Hard to tell. If you have a puffer or other aggressive fish with them, they could be attacking them as well. Even things like tiger barbs, which are notorious fin nippers could be injuring them causing secondary issues. They aren't saltwater fish either, so if you have them in a saltwater tank, that would definitely be the issue. Again hard to tell.
