Substitute ancho chiles for California chiles?

can i use the Ancho Chiles instead of California Chiles?
I'm making tamales, i saw that they were both mild and figured i could, but before i do it i'm curious.

Californias are usually milder. Fine subs for each other.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
