i just tried to feed it some shrimp with a syringe and it tried to eat them but i dont know if it got any in its mouth or not. if i can get to a shop i will try and get some melafix and bloodworm
if it tried to eat some keep trying every 1 hr or something, also when you are at your local shop get a breedig net to isolate it in, shouldnt have it laying at the bottom it might be trying to breath and the sand is blocking the gills!!!

Marble Angel Fish are not the strongest fish. They have a narrow temperature range, from 75 to 82 degrees fahrenheit. They need water with a neutral pH, from 6.8 to 7.2. Marble Angel fish, when in shock or scared, will lay flat on the floor of the tank. This does not mean the end however. Most Marble Angel Fish can recover from this and regain their normal health
I dont think its a marble but i hope this is true
It doesnt seem to be a different colour

That link has a couple discrepancies, "The Marble Angel is one of the most hearty Angel Fish, making it one of the best choices for someone wanting to experience Angel Fish for the first time." and "Marble Angel Fish are not the strongest fish." In actuality, marble angels are one of the stronger strains. Any strain will be weak if improperly bred. Blacks, especially double darks are one of the weaker ones out there, due to the inbreeding needed to get that color. Marbles have been around for quite some time, they tend to be stronger than most.
My angels must not have read the part about needing a pH from 6.8 to 7.2. They live, spawn, & hatch in 7.7 pH.
I would slowly, over 3 days raise the temp, get it to at least 82F. Avoid bloodworms, they tend to constipate. You don't need this at all right now. Brine shrimp are a good choice, what you are trying to do is get the temperature up to a normal range, which will increase metabolisim. Increase in metabolism means an increase in appetite, which is needed if some infection did set in due to the temperature drop.
First priority should be dealing with the temperature drop, which put the fish into shock. Once that is dealt with, infection, if any, will be easier to deal with.
