greedy angel fish

Hi i have a white and black striped angelfish and a full black one in a community tank with a few guppies and barbs. The problem i am having is that the white angelfish feels the need to eat everything i feed to the tank and even chase the others when it is crunch time even when he is boxed up from over eating. is this normal for an angelfish ?

They are a cichlid, so you will see aggression in them. They are known to be aggressive eaters and can cause other fish to starve. What size is the tank? I wouldn't have the two in less than a 40gal. In the mean-time, feed in different areas of the tank.

They should be fine in that size tank, most people try starting them in a much smaller tank. Try putting food in multiple spots.
