Hi,
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.

Does any one now why my bicolour angel has lost all of its colour from the rear and only has the blue stipe through the eye left.  I've had this fish a year now the colour dissapeard 4 months ago, it seems healthy and happy and feeds well.

    They will change a bit as they age.  Water quality changes and stress can also cause a change in color.

I have a new bi color angel. Although he does stop now and then to pick at live rock, he continually swims back and forth across the tank. He almost seems nervous? Is this normal?

    Video on U-Tube of angelfish swimming angelfish and looks pretty normal for it to be going back and forth in the tank.

    Very Cool! Make sure you have plenty of different foods and get him eating. They can be finicky, but are very interesting fish. Good luck!

All dwarf angels I've had (flame, coral beauty, and now bicolor named Bandit) are by far some of the most beautiful and playful of any of the smaller marine fish, but can also be tough for beginners and are actually quite dingy. Bandit won't stop swimming over to my maroon clownfish Moe's territory, to which he nips like crazy, but it never clicks and does it again. Dwarf angels are beautiful and fun fish to have, yet they sometimes make me wonder if the lights are on but nobodys home when it comes to this particular species.
