No eels are totally reef safe. They will hide behind rocks, dig holes when they swim, are very strong and will re-decorate your aquascaping, not to mention that they can break brittle corals. And to top it off, they will eat ANY fish, crab, shrimp clam that it can fit into its mouth. They are very messy eaters and give off a lot of waste, so you have to be carfull of amonia\nitrite\nitrate spikes, so make sure you have a real good skimmr.

That said, I keep an eel in my reef tank. It can be done, its just a lot of work, but well worth it.

If you are haiving trouble finding information on the eel, look up the name goldentail moray. The eel you are describing is a color variation sold as a different species.

"The goldentail moray can be brown with tiny gold flecks, brown with larger light spots or even all yellow. The latter phase is often sold as the Brazilian golden moray and sells for hundereds of dollars."AFM volume 14 number 6.
This is where i am getting my info, but i could be wrong.
