I am losing my angelfishes in cement tank, I can able to see white spots in body, any solution please help
How many angelfish? How far is the tank filter established? How big is the filter? What is the frequency of water change? Is the cement tank new? Then it will be leaching chemicals to the water. Angelfish thrives in acidic water of the amazon, a cement tank with leaching chemicals is usually alkaline.

Is the tank indoor, or outdoor? Most probably it is outdoor, since it is 2000L. Have you introduced any new fish recently? Are all the fishes affected, or only the angelfishes? White spot or Itch usually comes from external sources. Once inside the tank you have to wait for them to enter dormant stage where the protozoan falls from the fish skin to the aquarium floor, then vacuum as much as possible.
My solution, remove the diseased fishes to a smaller bare bottom hospital tank, and do 20% WC every alternate days with declorinated water, and use some methylene blue. Raise the temperature, it will speed up the protozoan life cycle. clean the aquarium floor everyday. Do this, and hopefully, your fishes will be OK in a week!
