I think Shark21 hit the nail on the head. Between the 2 pics, I see 4 Tetras that definitely could be the nippers here. Don't forget, since this fish is a standard Angels and not Veiltail, the fins should be coming to a point more than rounded. That rounding effect is actually an offshoot of creating the Veiltail form.
This pic is of a wild P. Scalare ( the original parent of all domestic Angels)
You'll notice the Dorsal (Top) fin is pointed not round.


The following is a standards guide by the Angelfish Society as to what our Angelfish should look like:
TAS Library - Conformation Standards for Freshwater Angelfish
(There are also some really nice pics of Angels on that site )


Hope this helps

I bought these a few weeks ago (once my long awaited 55 gallon was cycled) they're body is the size of a quarter. Im not certain which type of angels they are, they were labeled "assorted veil tail". I believe they are marble. (Not sure on gender yet either.)

Still just watching and enjoying them, and will eventually come up with names for them.
