Hello, I got an angelfish on Wednesday. It ate the first time I fed, but the last 2 days it will not eat. He doesn't seem all that active, although I have never had an angelfish before, so I do not know how active they are. Please say and info you need. Thanks!

What are you feeding it? Maybe try something different. Sometimes they take a little time to get used to the tank.

Good Luck

How big is it?

I would give it a few days and not worry, don't over fed the tank trying to make sure it eats.

It is bigger than a quarter. Maybe around as big as a half-dollar coin.

Try live food if you haven't already. I've never known a healthy angelfish to turn down live food, even when it won't eat anything else.

Good morning.

I agree with Brian/Btate. The fish is new and still acclimating to his new environment. Give him a few days to settle in.

Best wishes.
