The White Tail Tang is a uncommon medium-sized surgeonfish which needs plenty of swimming space. Most photos on the internet doesn't do this fish justice. It does have beautiful spots on his head and lines on the body and would make an excellent choice for someone who doesn't want the usual tangs. Like most Acanthuridae, it can be aggressive towards other fish, especially with algae eating or similar looking fish.

Like other tangs, it will eat meaty foods, but it's important to make sure it can graze on algae/seaweed the entire day to make sure it will stay healthy. So feed flakes/pellets multiple times a day and make sure there is always seaweed available.
