On another note, I've also read that you should introduce all the Angels at or very near to the same time and when they're a similar size.
Second point is very true.

As for the first, the head bump, I am not aware of this. There is a difference in the head between two of the species, can't remember which now, but the profile mentions this.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
