Can you get fish to stop biting fins?

I just got this Angelfish today, and it's quite young. It was super thrilled, and so was I. But my Bumblebee Cichlid took a bite of its top fin. How can I stop this? Please help I love Angels, my other died recently so I got this one. I don't want it to die, too.

Rehome whichever you like least I guess. They're not compatible whatsoever so it's going to get far worse before it gets better…

The bumble bee will destroy the angel. Totally incompatible fish.

You need to research fish to be certain their compatible before you buy them.

That poor angel... That's probably one of the worst cichlids you could put an angel with besides obvious like JD and Oscar. Please do some more research. Angels may be cichlids, but they can not compete at all to most others and will have their fins ripped to shreds.
