Best EEL for 55 gallon REEF

Allright guys. I am trying to decide between a 10in wolf eel blenny, and a 10in snowflake eel.

The wolf eel blenny was on sale for 50% off($17.50)
While
The snowflake eel was $30

My tank is mainly LPS. which eel should I get?

The wolf is nice and chunky! So he wouldn't be able to go carpet surfing through my egg crate!
While the snow was thin.
Either way if the snow is the better choice I will fatten him up and put my tight glass lid on the tank till he gets thicker.

Which one do you experts think I should get? I

Thank you!

Sry. Kinda a stupid question. If I keep the water level 2in below the top of the tank. I'll be a lot safer with it jumping right?

Not a stupid question you just care about the eel. Idk mine was fine for along time never thought about him jumping. Doing what you said should provide ample security. Not like he's thinking of jumping just swimming up and down against glass I think it will be a slim chance of going through egg crate.

Thank you soo much!! You made me feel a lot better! I will go with the snowflake eel!
I want to feed him squid. Is this a good food choice?
And if there bites don't puncture the skin could I hand feed like you? Or Are tongs a good idea?

Could I add a pipe for him to be in? Or are my 85LBS of live rock enough for him?

Your rocks would be fine their eye sight is poor but usually they hit the fish. Their bite is weak when there small sort of like a lizard.you get use to it.i never tried squid I feed mine every couple of days you will know when he's hungary he will come out to the food smell.when mine jumped he didn't eat for six weeks then one day ate about twelve silversides.
