Make no mistake, your snowflake will eat you fish, it is just a matter of time. Also they can get out thru a very small opening

You posted something awhile ago about your stocking. I pretty sure people mentioned this would happen with eels. If you value your fish, you will take him out. He might not eat all of your fish, but make no mistake, he will manage to eat some. Give it time.

Well I speak of my own experiences with Snowflakes over the the last 10-12 years. I have at different times had 3 or 4 over the years, 2 things are certain, they will eat all your crabs, snails and fish sooner or later, and second they will get out of your tank at some point in time. Thru a small opening or when the tops is off for cleaning.
