I had never seen a Gold Spangled Angelfish in the twenty years I have been maintaining a marine tank, so when I saw one in a St. Louis marine aquarium store, I had to buy it. The fish was extremely expensive ($350), and is the most I ever paid for a fish.
The fish is absolutely gorgeous and is a good tankmate with the other fish. He has an excellent appetite, and appears to be flourishing in the 2 months I have owned him. I will keep my fingers crossed.

The gold flake angel is a nice fish to have. They are quite hard to keep. I had one when my tank was 6 months old, then it got white spot and cloudy eyes, then died. The second one I had when the tank was 13 months old. Had it for a 6 weeks, woke up one day to find it dead. The 3rd one I have, the tank was 2 years old and I still have it. I have had it now for a 15 months. So if you are going to buy one, I would wait at least 16 months before you put one in you tank, because these fish are hard to keep and not cheap.
