Japanese swallowtip angel??

Picked up a Japanese swallowtip angel today at my local. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this fish. As this will be my first angel. Liveaquaria calls it a spotbreast angelfish. Looking for first hand info on feeding and compatibility. Thanks.

i have one, great little fish. I feed it mysis shrimp and seaweed on a clip, it loves seaweed. Totally reef safe so far, never nipped a coral or invert at all. Because of it being a different type of angle you can keep it with another, I have a coral beauty in my tank too and they get along fine.

Awesome that's good to hear. I tried feeding her formula 2 a few hours after I put her into the tank. She seemed interested but wasn't confident enough to go out and actually eat. I am assuming this is somewhat normal. And i am begin overly concerned. I will try mysis tomorrow how often did you feed?
