You will need to keep a very close eye on ph, alkalinity, and calcium readings for the next week or 2. I would consider testing every 3rd day and adding supplements accordingly.
Wow. You really have 2 angelfish in an aquarium that has only been set up for 2 months????!!!! This doesn't allow time for a good population of copepods and amphipods to develop and the overall system to stabilize, much less time for proper quarantine.
