Bought a 3" Potters Angelfish about a month ago. He's in a 135 gallon tank with a 30 gallon sump and a 30 gallon refugium. About 200 pounds of live rock and 100 pounds of live sand. Tank mates are: Passer Angel, Koran Angel, Blonde Naso Tang, Kole Tang, Yellow Tang, Sohal Tang, Volitans Lion. He was rather expensive and I was a bit nervous putting him in a tank with much larger and bolder fish. Especially after reading that they can be rather shy and rarely come out of hiding. He proved to be the exact opposite. Almost always out in the open, often grazing on the live sand. He is a beautiful fish and adds a gorgeous splash of vivid reddish orange and purple. One of my favorite and strongest fish. Farely rare and expensive but well worth it.

I put a gold, flame, coral beauty and potters together in a 1200 lt coral tank. That is a beautiful site, they have been together for about 9 months with a gimatum, yellow tang, gobies and 2 mandarins

UPDATE: I recently had a nitrate spike in my tank. My Potters Angel stopped eating and died the next day. I was very sad to lose this fish. I kept him successfully for four months. Reasonably hardy but won't tolerate poor water conditions.
