Help with Angelfish situation

Have 14 Angelfish in 120 gallon, along with 3 Frontosa, all get along great.

Bought 2 black ones 3 days ago at LFS, only one ate the second day, other sorta stayed by itself.

Today found that one dead, and the other with a little discoloration on sides and bulging eyes a bit. Assumed it was popeye disease in its infancy stage. Took fish out and put in its own ten gallon to monitor.

None of others show any signs of it and I read its not contagious. Treated ten gallong with 1/4 teaspoon of Epsom salt for now.

I should have known better than to just put the new ones right into big tank, but they looked fine. However that store before has had problems and knowing that I should have quarantined for a bit.

Thankfully rest are all eating normal, rushing over to eat and acting normal. SO don't think anything else has it.

Any advice?

Personally, I'd medicate him in quarantine. Just keep an eye on the others in your main tank over the next month. Do a 50% water change on your main tank.
