a valentini sounds like a good choice, they are a very social fish and enjoy watching people.

Cheers

Wow nice size tank bet it looks great! I wonder about the CC collecting alot of debris and excess food...Do you have a good clean up crew at all? Hermits, snails, crabs etc?

no clean up crew, eel would eat um lol. I havnt had much of a problem with debris though. I try to remove any left over pieces of the shrimp i feed my eel, but the damsel in there usually gets to um first. The eel also roams the tank at night for food. The eel has associated lifting the lighting hoods with feeding time, he also comes out when he sees the skewer (sometimes i trick him to show friends). I will be adding a valenti saddleback puffer to the tank next wednesday. Could someone advise me to what these eat?

For the most part if you where to get smaller snails (nassarius, cerith, nerite) and possibley hermits, the eel would ignore them, too small. The only ones I ever had a problem with where large turbo snails and that was if I wasn't quick enough on the feedings.

These guys are basically carnivors much like the eel. They will benefit from a much more diversified and fortified diet however.

You might wish to try blender mush...

Cheers

You don't have to peel the shrimp. You only have to do that with Muraena, Gymnothorax, and Enchelycore and a few others with long teeth. Gymnomuraena and Echidna eat crustaceans as their primary diet in the wild and have charply recurved nearly flat teeth as well as some teeth that resemble molars. I feed my Echidna rhodochilus live shrimp. That doesn't mean they won't eat fish, it just means they can handle the shell. When that E. nebulosa gets bigger, he'll eat your damsel too. I also hand feed my eels (not with my hand, with tongs, but you get the idea).

I'm new to this particular website, but I know quite a bit about the entire family Muraenidae. I'm actually a FishBase collaborator for the family.

I feed my eels, freeze dried krill, they love. Its healthy for them and doesn't pollute the water like brine shrimp. Not to mention most fish love it. My 5 inch snowflake tears it up.
