Some ate, some never ate, and over a 2-7 day period they died one-by-one, finally tried precautionary dosing of copper sulfate in the QT tank. To date, no angels at all...
Use to run a tank setup/maintenance service while in high school, bought fish wholesale, and never
had a problem with angels before. VERY frustrating...
I just set up my first angel tank, and I had trouble with multiples as well. I finally added one at a time, this last purchase added 2. used a table spoon of aquarium salt every water change, and gave them a place to hide,( large plant against the side wall) so they got to feeling safe, and kept the size fairly close to the others, so far no casualties.
