Is she skinny? You may be lucky, angels are excellent foragers, maybe living off the land.

If she's browsing, that's a really good sign. Now to find out what she will eat. Try some fresh clam soaked in garlic. I've never seen a angelfish that didn't like that. try a tiny piece first.

SHE ATE!! After one month, finally. She only took one piece of mysis though, but it's a start.

I used fresh garlic this time, mashed it up with some tank water, then added a little Kent Zoe and soaked the food in the juice. She still looks intimidated by the big sized shrimp, but she are a piece, and kept it down tomorrow I'll try the same except with the crap Hikiri small shrimp, they're more her size I guess.

Do you think if she gets the majority of her food from algae around the tank, her hlle will get better? the only real way I can heal her up is if she eats a lot of prepared food, but I just don't see it happening.
