If they stress out, they can all become Ich magnets. How about a Kole tang? They do better in systems your size. I never had problems with any tang unless there was aggression or undersized swimming area issues. Your tank certainly isn't small, but tangs love horizontal swimming areas.

I think any of the tangs with that body type will do ok in smaller systems- yellow, scopus, purple, black...

You might have left out one zebrasoma for a reason. Sailfin tangs get so big. My LFS has one. It's definitely over a foot long. I've never owned one but apparently they are one of the more peaceful tangs.
