Hi I just bought another regal tang and he is in my breeder box that has poles and a net. Do you think he will die because there is only a net and his fins will get tangled

and how large is the tang?

I'd actually recommend you isolate the aggressor, and let the new fish establish territory. I had the same issue with my coral beauty angel trying to murder my new yellow tang. Coral beauty spent 10 days in isolation box and was docile thereafter.

I agree about placing the aggressor in isolation not the new arrival. IMO it just adds to the stress they are already under.
I'm also not a fan of nets in general. I don't even like using them to catch fish. I've had to cut too many fish out after getting fins tangled.
Those fish also like to wedge themselves into rock crevices when scared and at night so I would at least try to provide something like that for it.
