No. Any of the Acanthurus (Paracanthurus) genus of Tangs require much more space than you have to offer. In fact, I would not even purchase a Zebrasoma species. Your best option for a Tang is the Ctenochaetus genus, which includes the Kohl Tang, Chevron Tang, and Tomini Tang. But even these selections are probalby only suited for a reef environment.
