Hi, welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately there are no tangs for a 60g tank. :-(

The closest you can get is at 75g and then the selection is somewhat small.

Yellow and blue tangs need at least a 6 foot tank and PLENTY of swimming room.

Are you going with corals or just fish only? There are some nice angel fish that look similar to tangs but aren't coral friendly.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Here is the one I was looking at when I wanted a yellow tang and only had a 55g tank

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Lemonpeel Angelfish

Lemon peel, flame angel, coral beauty, those are a few of my favorites. Look at Liveaquria.com. Gives you ideas and what is required to keep them.
