I have had my snowflake for about a week now, 2nd night in the tank he decided to snack on a clown that was about 1 in half smallest fish by far. no invert loses i been feeding silversides and a mix of mysis shrimp. Seems to be very calm till feeding time. I love him, to be honest if he was turns into a probelm i think i would rather rehome my other fish !

clowns are finger foods for them, and as they bigger so will all your other fish, it doesn't matter how much you feed them, they are predatory night hunters

Snowflake eel

Yes, it's pretty hard, maybe impossible, to get a moray to not like a live food snack now and again. That's what they were designed for. I still deeply love them as they are so cool. I remember the first one I saw in the movie The Deep. Scared me to death, then I started diving, photographing and even feeding the little suckers (something that is generally not recommended). I dove the wreck of the Rhone off of Salt Island where The Deep was filmed and fed morays that lived under the wreck like in the movie at night. You gain a lot of respect for these guys when you enter their world.
