I read a bit and you need a special permit from the Department of Fish and Game to take or hold them in CA. Places like Aquarium of the Pacific have one. I'm guessing they won't give permits to the average aquarist.

They are very territorial and aggressive, so even if a site somewhere says they are okay in a smaller tank, I would assume that is as a juvenile and probably without other fish. They end up being extra large damsels with extra large attitudes and hyper-territorial. The adults will attack divers, so I'm not sure I'd put them with any fish. If you have ever snorkeled/dived around these guys, you would probably have a good idea of why they are better left in the wild.

Well the problem is this forum is pretty adherent to ethical fishkeeping, which would probably include obeying the laws regarding catching or keeping this fish.

Each to their own, but I don't think one would get support for saying such a thing on this forum. ( I am not judging, just stating why people might have an adverse reaction to your statement. )

EDIT| I should be a politician.

Ya lets go kill someone and if we can get away with it then it's ok. It is a law. I would really just not do it and avoid the risk of possibly being fined a lot of money. Also it would be the only fish in the tank, no matter of you added other fish or not because it would kill them.

I would think that the fish store and supplier would get fined for supplying these fish. Clearly not a shop they does things by the book as was previously mentioned. Not too sharp if they are willing to risk big trouble to sell an illegal fish for no profit.

Sounds like you are willing to get it anyways, so I would talk to your LFS about what they suggest for tank mates. Big Angels are expensive (even at wholesale) and it does not sound like they will do well with such an aggressive fish. Even small (typical damsel size), they are going to cause trouble worse than a typical damsel.
