I'd have to have a very established tank to have one in there and I'd want it to be huge

i for one love my snowflake eel, he was the first addition to my tank and hes calmed down alot, he doesnt cruise as much now that i feel him once a day, he doesnt nip anymore either, hes pretty cool with all my stock so far, clowns, bicolor basselet, six line wrasse, midas blenny, flame angel, all pretty small and medium sized, hes usually just "touring" the rock work and likes to kick back in my red mushrooms and "relax" im all for a snowflake eel in the reef.

I always wanted a eel
but always afraid it would eat all my stock
now that my engineer goby grew I feel like I got my eel
I'm wondering if he will stop growing he's huge a little over a foot

How good is the lid on your tank and have you had any problems with ph swings because of it?

That's great... I guess it depends on their personality.

Yeah I figured it would be like any other animal, if I got him young he would have better chances to adjust to the reef lifestyle and learn to ignore his tank mates and wait to be fed daily.

I had 1/4" glass cut to the exact dimensions of the tank tops except for a 1" gap by the center brace to be able to lift the glass lids off.

That's the only problem about a bowfront tank it's harder to get lids
