Welcome!  A 40g is a bit too small for a yellow tang but is a good size aquarium for a start in saltwater.  My first reef tank was a 40L with a cheap 4 bulb T5 fixture.

Joey,
You may want to check out liveaquaria.com for compatibility and size recommendations for fish.

In general fish vs tank size can be a bit controversial, but as stated in the post above mine liveaquaria.com has sensible minimum sizes for each species of fish listed on the site.
