I am not one who recommends angels with silver dollars, partly for exactly the reason you give, feeding. Also, angels need camoflage, their vertical strips tell us they live among fallen branches and will feel more secure if they have something similar, like branches, tall growing plants (Vallisneria, Sagittaria are ideal, plus larger swords); though plants may be impossible, the common SD's are notorious plant eaters. And angels are sedate fish that do not appreciate the boistrousness of SD's. As you have the SD's settled, I would suggest returning the angels. There is also the very real issue of size and water quality that Dawn mentioned.
