The largest Angel I have ever seen in captivity was a 16” Queen.
In a normal tank the largest one I had ever seen is my 5” melanospilos. I wish I had room for a velvet though.

What’s the biggest Majestic, Regal, Goldflake or Blue Line you’ve seen. Anyone?

Yeah it does seem that some of the Pomacanthus and Holacanthus get really big.
As for regal I think it was a 6 inch specimen, gold flakes and blue lines are rather uncommon to see over here but last time I saw one the largest was a 2/3 inch specimen. Largest majestic must’ve been 6 inch too.

I used to help with aquariums at a rainforest Cafe a long time ago. We had French angels that were probably close to 2'
I have seen these in the wild off Cozumel back in the 80's. They are impressive. Some of the divers would carry a can of Cheese Whiz and attract them right up to their face mask.

They were fun to swim with and they would follow us around while we cleaned the tanks. Would grab a clump of hair and give your scalp a good tug from time to time lol.
