Hi knowbest congrats on your koran ive had one before, anyways what I fed was Mysis (not to much though or he will get HLLE) and try some nori that might work, and there is also something called angelfish formula that also might be a good choice and maybe New Life Spectrum. Try that see if it works :|

Also, saying it has been less than a day, I wouldn't expect him to eat. None of my new pick ups ever eat until the second or third day.

Give it time. Should tried to graze on Rock/Deco though?

I love the Koran, definitely one of my top 10 marine fish. They are generally very sturdy fish and easy to feed. Is it the only fish in the tank? It is much more likely to feed quickly if there are other fish for it to observe at feeding time.

In any case, I would be patient. Start with frozen brine shrimp or garlic soaked flakes. Both are great to stimulate first time feeding in captivity.

By the way, what size tank do you have?

Don't koran angels need a much bigger tank than 40 gallons? Don't they get huge?

Wait, yeah found it. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...412&pcatid=412

I don't think so..
