Snow flake in reef

I was thinking of getting a snowflake for my 55 gal reef tank I saw one yesterday at my LFS just curious will it eat my azure damsel blue/green chromis and my occ. clowns? The one I saw at the shop was tiny I want something unique for my tank everyone who looks at it sees nemo but I want them to get a supprise when they see something like an eel in there

If it is small, it will probably be okay with the larger fish for a while, but when it gets larger, anything it can grab and eat should be considered fair game.

It won't be for a couple of months I'm just getting things back on track with my tank so glueing the rocks would be advisable and maybe put the clowns and azure in my 20 gal? That's what I'm thinking would the chromis be alright?

The novelty of a snowflake eel wears off pretty quick IMO.

I got one when I first started the hobby. It wasn't that big, but it still ate a couple of my fish. It will also make maintaining your reef more difficult as they are a "dirty" fish.

Wow that's an impressive time to have one. A 55 is IMO to small for a ribbon eel though
