Angelfish never eats from the top.
I noticed an interesting behavior in one of my angelfish. Currently I have 10 small juveniles, I intend to give a few away as they get larger since I don't have space. Anyways, when I feed them all of them rush to the top except one. It's the only marble one I have. It very actively attacks the pieces that fall down, but it wont go up to the surface to eat. It seems healthy otherwise so I'm not worried. It's just an interesting behavior in my opinion and I want to see other comments in it. I kind of like it. It's different. I see him sort of as my cleaning crew since the other ones ignore the falling pieces until thats all thats left. But I worry he may not get as much food as the others eat most of it off top.

all my angels beside my platinum angel eat from top bottom middle and sideways. My Platinum is more picky and likes to catch it as it is at top or middle but doesn't pick at the bottom for food like that is too low class for him lol. To each their own. Guess there is always 1 quirky uppity angel in every crowd...
