I don't think it's necessary to have a wet/dry with that size tank. A really good filter like an aquaclear should do the trick. And faithful water changes.

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

wet/dry filter can become a pain if you don't clean it a lot. it will create nitrates

If you added anything I would go with something like a refugium, not a wet/dry.
