I have a Half-Black angel who has a couple stripes and they fade in and out depending on her "mood". I think your angel is perfectly normal. As long as it is eating and acting normal and there is no sign of clamped fins or hiding then it's probably nothing to worry about.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Thanks Jeaninel. That makes me feel better. I did a pwc last night and observed him for quite some time afterwards. He acts perfectly normal. Swims well, interacts, eats. Everything is normal except his stripes. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't anything I could be doing better or differently if he was unhappy. He's so beautiful with his stripes, I just wish he'd show them more.

Horray for more friends! I'm sure you'll see a huge difference in the one you originally had now that you've added a couple more.

Mine do the same thing. I love watching them swim back and forth together. They're inseperable. I'd be careful about adding 2 more. I saw you have a 75g tank with now 3 Silver Dollars and 3 Angels. Remember that Silver Dollars get to be 6"-8" each and Angels about 6" each. That's 6 large mid-swimming fish in one tank. It doesn't look like much now because they are small, but wit ha healthy environment, they will grow. It could work with extra water changes, but it's something to think about.
