Why is my angelfish chasing my other angelfish around?

My angelfish have begun to show new behavior. I have two angelfish, and one is always chasing the other into hiding. The one that chases the other is slightly bigger and more colorful, and the smaller one is starting to hide all the time and only come out to snag the food the bigger one misses. How do I fix this?

Because this this species very territorial and does not like random company of other angelfish. You will find that to be true of a fair amount of tropical fish. Its best not to have 2 angels in one tank... eventually one will die from the stress and hiding,
