Help with Bi Color Angel

I am worried about him because I dont see him eat. He picks at the rocks but when I put the frozen mysis in the tank I have never seen him actually eat any of the mysis.

Any ideas of what else I could actually feed him? Love this fish and dont want to lose him.

Garlic guard soaked shrimp might work. Picky eaters usually go crazy over it.

More importantly, how long has it been in the tank? Not unusual at all for new fish to not eat for days.

And you gotta know an angel likes more vegetable matter, not meat so much. Bicolor Angelfish

They make a seaweed mix with garlic that usually works for me to get them to eat. I just tie it to some rubble for 24 hours. My angel will pick at it throughout the day. Might be worth a try.

Mail order. Here. Seachem Laboratories Garlic Guard

Add this to your list too - in case you don't have one and concerned about ordering only one thing. Need more purchase suggestions? I love to see others spend money.
