I'm sorry about your angelfish.
How are the water parameters in the tank?

Ah, I see.
I once read and I could be wrong that Garlic enticed eating in fish. Did that not work?
Was the angelfish bullied by others? The stress could have caused it to not eat if it was being picked on and couldnt get away or wasn't left alone.

To stimulate their feeding frenzy just do the ff:

Warm the temperature of the tank
Let it feed alone by covering the tank with newspaper to not stress fishes out
Check the water parameters

Might be it has an internal parasite.

Sorry bout the fish, these are the tips I know to let them be in a feeding frenzy.
