Macro algae is something they love
They need a 6-7 foot tank

Yup. 6 foot tank required. Diet should consist of veggies and some meaty foods. Absolute ick magnets.

They are ick magnets. They have a very thin slime coat and get stressed very easily. They need atleast a 125g tank or a 6' tank. A lot of people say 180g for the extra width. I've seen these guys get over a foot long. And they never stop swimming. Definitely not in a 72.

Flame angel will be great for a 72, however are know to sometimes pick at corals if you have any.

^agreed. I think that'll be a great addition to a FOWLR and sometimes a reef if if it's a non coral nipper.
