New Angels!

I just got two angels a Bi-Colored Angel and a Flame Angel. They look great. The BC Angel is hiding in the rocks and is a little bigger than the Flame. The Flame is in the corner of the tank picking at some algae and looking at himself. What should I do to entice them to eat? I already have an algae sheet set up.

Dude... Return one. Unless your tank is 100+ gallons they will fight until one is killed. You may think "this kid is wack ill just let it play out" but they will fight for sure.

Angels can be territorial but adding them at the same time is a good idea. Bicolor and flame could be just fine or one could turn agressive. You have lots of room in your tank and good rock areas which is a good thing. Its a risk but it looks like you've already committed. Watch their behaviour, if you see one starting to get nippy or fighthing for food it could be a good idea to separate.

I haven't fed them yet I'm going to give them some time to acclimate. Is it normal for my bi color just to stay in the rocks while acclimating?

Yup. Very common for new fish to hide out at first.

He's slowly venturing out of his cave. The flame is just don't like circles in the same spot. It's weird. What should I feed them? Live food?
