Any tangs not that suseptable that you know of?
As far as I know, all fish are suseptable to ich, although, there are some tangs that a re less likely to it. If I remember correctly, austinsdad listed a few in a post, not long ago.
Austinsdad/whomever, please forgive me if I am incorrect!

http://liveaquaria.com/product/prod_...cfm?pCatId=369 . i have one of these wrasse. they are very cool and are active swimmers.

mandarins to the best of my knowledge do not get ich ( mine did not ). but you need lots of live rock, a sump with refugium and an established tank to support them.

if you QT all new fish for 6 - 8 weeks they will in most case show ich if they have it. i have seen some discussion that you can just go the safe route and treat all new arrivlas in QT with the hypo-salinity treatment. this has proven very effective in ridding fish of ich. from what i have read. the lower salt levels can actually be less stressful to a new fish anyway. you would need to acclimate them to a normal salinty first though. you could not acclimate a new fish a hypo-salinity SG the day you bring them home

dwarf angels can be a good fish. i have a bi color angel in a reef and he is not exactly a model citizen. but not unbearable.

IMO, i would not let how likley a fish is to have ich effect your choice. pretty much all fish can get it and can be treated while in QT before introducing them to the main

I have found IME that yellow and kole tangs are less suseptible to ick . As stated all fish can get ick but some are more suseptible i.e. powder blue.
