Flame Angels are dwarf Angels and Regals are large Angels so they can be kept together. HOWEVER, a large Flame Angel is about the size of a commonly sold SMALL Regal and would not be good tankmates as the Flame could be too aggressive for such a small Regal. Keep this in mind if you do get them both.

As for tank sizes, Regals do not do well in smaller aquariums so a minimum tank size of 48" long would be recommended for a smaller Regal with a 60" or 72" long tank for a larger Regal. Make sure there are lots of hiding places as Regals like to hide for security. Most don't do well in tanks because the decor is too sparse. I've had many successes with Regals from different parts of the world when they were placed in a heavily decorated tank.

Hope this helps
