About 3 months, he seems pretty mellow. He eats out of my hand.

I currently have a 17" snowflake in my 110g reef.
I have learned not to keep fish and shrimp small enough for him to eat.
If it fits in his mouth he will try to eat it.
This is about what I have lost since I got him:
(4) green chromis
(6) peppermint shrimp
(2) cleaner shrimp
True percula clownfish (2")
Picasso clown (2")
And a handful of small damsels

At first I just didn't know what would happen to them, I would wake up and be missing a fish, I eventually figured it out.
As long as you keep him fed good, once every three days, 3 silversides, then he shouldn't be too hungry and try and eat a fish

Snowflake eel

Wow...that's an expensive moray lesson. I fed them in the wild and know they are designed to do one thing. Eat things smaller than itself. Here is a wild shot of your snow flakes bigger cousin Click image for larger version

Hawaiian spotted moray...this one was very hungry for a snack and was about 36" long. Shot at night at about 50'

I've noticed lol, I think I'll wait for my upgrade next year before I add the eel to the main tank.
