hey everyone I added 2 adult size angel fish to my 125 gallon fish tank just over 24 hours ago. My tank already had 4 adult angel fish in it. The old angel fish have been bullying the new ones so much that they won’t come out of hiding or eat. Is there something I can do or should I just let them be for now? Thanks everyone.

Unless the new Angels are getting injured, best to just let them endure the cichlid "Smack down". The Angels are just adjusting their heirarchy. A 125 gal. Allows a lot of avenues
For escape.
I recently released three juvenile African Cichlids into my African community 120 gal. The hazing was brutal, but remarkably all three survived, no injuries. It took a day or two but the newcomers have their ranking and a relative peace has been achieved. Its likely things will level out for your Angels soon.
