I don't QT my fish in a sterile environment. I do isolate them in the refugium or in my Invertebrates QT system. I don't treat my fish for anything unless I know what it is and I don't treat my fish for Ich.
I don't put anemones, clams or corals into my system unless I put them through a through QT and observation period to make sure that they are doing well and disease free.
My fish always able to get over a few disease that occasional pop up in my tank. I never have any fish disease that kill more than one or two of my fish. The rest do fine without problem.
I never ever come event remotely close to tank (fish) wipe out. Certain clams, corals and anemone diseases really cause me a lot of problem so that is why I QT my invertebrates.

I would say it depends. Colorwise there isn't a big difference. And they are as easy or difficult to acclimate as any other Regal.
My personal preference is Maldives because you get small juveniles of under 2" from there while the smallest Sumatra I've seen so far was 3.5".

The Regal Angels from Sumatra are Yellow Bellies.

Aquatic Collection here has Sumatra Regals all the time and sometimes even Red Sea Regals. Unfortunately they never get Maldives.
I tried hard to find a difference between the Sumatra and Red Sea specimen they had but couldn't find anything. Maybe there is a difference when they are fully grown, but up to 6 inches I couldn't tell the difference.
