I purchased a Bicolored Angle about 2 weeks ago, the Angel looks great and swims around and looks happy too! But he does not eat!
I tried flake food, fresh brine shrimp, frozen brine shrimp, freeze dried shrimp, roman lettuce etc... Is this normal?
What can I do?

    Sometimes this can be tough. Continue with the variety until the Angel catches on....

    I read that you can direct some sunlight to your tank and start some algae blooming and they will eat that to get them started. My tank already had some in hard to reach areas and when I introduced mine that was the first thing he went for then later started at other things as he settled in.

One of my favourites! And one property you cant forget about him is he is very very intelligent. He even identifies the owner and will eat out of his hand. Try kissing him through the glass and he will kiss you back! Very good fish to have!

Bought a 3" Potters Angelfish about a month ago. He's in a 135 gallon tank with a 30 gallon sump and a 30 gallon refugium. About 200 pounds of live rock and 100 pounds of live sand. Tank mates are: Passer Angel, Koran Angel, Blonde Naso Tang, Kole Tang, Yellow Tang, Sohal Tang, Volitans Lion. He was rather expensive and I was a bit nervous putting him in a tank with much larger and bolder fish. Especially after reading that they can be rather shy and rarely come out of hiding. He proved to be the exact opposite. Almost always out in the open, often grazing on the live sand. He is a beautiful fish and adds a gorgeous splash of vivid reddish orange and purple. One of my favorite and strongest fish. Farely rare and expensive but well worth it.

I work as a project manager in ornamental fish Pudong Mount Sinai in Egypt. We would like to introduce the idea of farming ornamental fish to salt water, such as butterflies, as well as angels and the question is: Are there countries that have succeeded in these new ideas? Please provide me with the sites electronically. Were they successfully cultivated was it economically profitable, and what is the length of time required by these fish before the sale? Thank you for your cooperation with me.

Hello, I just got my Emperor angelfish, I did the complete acclimatation process, but after a few hours, it is breathing very fast and hiding. My parameters are fine. It is an adult around 5 or 6 inches. What can I do? I read that more than 80 gill per minute its a red flag!

    Hmmm. If you are sure your parameters are fine then maybe your fish simply is used to different water conditions. It may be that he simply needs some time to acclimate to your tank. I would give it some time. Watch for other physical symptoms to determine if he is sick. Also make sure he is eating and swimming normally.

    What else is in the tank?  Maybve something in there causing stress?  Any way to test the water that it came from to seem if it is all the same or close?  temp change?  When you do you acclimation do you use the drip method?

Our Flame Angel was not aggressive, but a very nosy fish, it checked out every aspect of the tank at least 1000 times! This is a note for anyone going to buy a flame angel, they are not the brightest fish ours got up in a big plastic wrecked ship and apparently couldn't get out. It was found dead in there, the water was checked and in perfect condition and the other fish were all fine. The angel was doing great one minute and then found dead in the ship. We think it might have gotten up in the ship and couldn't find it's way out and stressed too bad. I would not recommend any decorations in a tank with one of these except natural elements. We have since removed the ship and no other problems have occured with our fish since.

I've had a juvenile blue angel for about a month now, took sometime but he is definitely eating now, mysis, flakes, pellets, ect. Also angelfish formula so diet is ok, water paremeters ok, color around head is fading,  know they change color, but afraid this is difficult because it's almost skin tone ish, literally looks like color is disappearing all together? Any advice?

    This is often from stress.  What other fish are in the tank?
