Garden eels?

I would say that one of my favorite creatures of ALL are garden eels. However, I have read up on these guys and found that (purportedly) they are: Hard to find, expensive, hard to keep, flying-out-of-the-tank jumpers, and require a crazy-deep sand bed. However, we all know how advice can really vary.... I would really like to eventually have a tank with garden eels if I could keep them happy. For some reason I just think they are the coolest 8) I would suppose that I would want to have a 70 gal or so with super deep sand (live? or not?) and live rock and that's it?? Does anyone have garden eels/seen them in a friends setup? I read about a guy that put some in his refugium and they really seem to enjoy it in there. Anyway thanks in advance.
