Are they hard to get to eat? I love them, but I wanted to stay away from them because of how picky they are

My Singapore came with the 240g I'm setting up. It is in a 45g for now and eats just about everything...loves the shrimp or silversides that I put in for the Volitan Lionfish, Formula 2 pellets, Spectrum pellets...just about anything I put in there. I've heard that they are tough, but the prior owner said it ate fine from the LFS. Its kinda cool because its a great fish, but one I probably would have never chosen.

my angel

I have a koran angel and always have luck with pellet food. Seems that she likes food that sinks to the bottom.

Angels are natural rock grazers. they need an established tank to feel comfortable enough to feed. They will also stop eating if there is too much aggression in the tank. They eat nori, many different proteins like mysis but their main diet is algae. If you have a rock with some green algae on it, it might start nibbling at that. Try a tiny piece of fresh clam, if that doesn't work, then the environment just isn't right yet for an angelfish. Hope he starts eating.

Remember when I said I was treating for gill flukes? Well, I think they're back. I saw my butterfly twitch. Prazi obviously is not working on these stupid things. are there any other options? could I move them to a qt tank, then leave the main tank fishless? If so, for how long? I hear the life cycle of flukes is like 1-2 weeks. and the eggs hatch in 2-4 days

I don't think it's why the angel won't eat, she never shows any symptoms.

It takes very little irritation to get angels to stop eating.

Sounds like QT is in order to starve the parasite by the absence of hosts.
