Angelfish hardly moving

I recently got 3 angels (just under an inch in diameter) about 3 weeks ago, and in the past couple days, one hasn't been moving much and i haven't seen it eat. It's hanging around near the filter (sucky part) and heater at the back wall of the tank. It's colouration has dimmed out a little bit as well. Anyone have an idea of what's happening?Click image for larger version

tiny angels can be very sensitive , it would help if we knew more about your water and the size of your tank and what you are feeding
angels can be more finicky than cats , live brine shrimp may get them to eat
the other 2 fish might be picking on it
what is your water temperature

No ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, ph7 temp is about 26 (don't know what that is in fahrenheit), I recently cleaned the external canister filter (yes i cleaned the bio balls and stuff in the tank water)

Is that a white patch on the angel? I see it in both pics.

If it's a white patch, it could be
Columnaris.

No, sorry, it's just the reflection (I don't have good camera skills)

I agree that it might be getting picked on.

1 of my danio went into a zombie state for about 36 hrs from being picked on. I ordered a tank separator, but by the time it arrived he was normal again.

How is your angel today? Any changes? Any new symptoms?
