I agree, your tank is small for a Tang. However, if you were going to pick a Tang, the absolute best Tang for a tank of your size is the Kole Tang. This is a very sturdy fish with a slower growth rate than most other Tangs, so it should be fine for some time. Just be certain to feed it algae sheets daily. I would cut small strips, so that they flow like strips of algae in the current, and attach them to a lettuce clip. It could take 10 to 12 feedings before it starts to eat the strips, so don't give up!
