Yeah, tangs get way too big for a ten gallon and like chris02 stated, I wouldn't try anything less than a 29 gallon.  Get the biggest you can afford and accomodate.  All fish need stable water parameters, but Saltwater fish even more so and having a smaller tank results in more fluctuation with those water parameters. 

I'm not saying you couldn't keep a 10 gallon saltwater tank, just that it will be more difficult on you as far as maintenance and testing goes and you really limit yourself with fish selection.
