Watch closely for any chasing, nudging, nipping, swords sneaking up behind the angel, etc. I'm quite serious about being absolutely still; any movement will cause the fish to think about what is going on outside, and feeding will pop into their heads, or predators, and they will not behave "normal."
Second though is water quality. Have you tested for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and if so, what are the numbers? What is the pH? And the GH? And the temperature?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
