Snowflake Eel

I have 29 gallon with 21-22 pounds of lr and 2 bio-wheels. As of now i have 2 damsels and an arrow crab. In the near future I want to take out the 2 damsels and put them into my 10 gallon. Would this be okay? I know it might be a little crowded but i think i might be able to do it. I want to have snowflake eel and a fuzzy dwarf lionfish. Can I do this? Also, what kind of care does a snowflake eel require, and can i put some ghost shrimp and silversides in there to feed both of them? Any input would be greatly appreciated, especially about the snowflake. TIA

a 29 wouldnt hold either , trust me its tempting to get a snowflake I had one in my 37 gal the eel was very small but it out grew it , a snowflake eel doesnt belong in a tank smaller 55 beause they grow rapidly and can die because of stress and they take up all your bioload

Snowflake eels are beautiful. I just purchase one for the Local Fish Store 1 day ago and he is loving his new 55 gallon tank and tankmates.

Please do not be tempted to do it. It would be very tight quarters in no time.

Actually you can keep a dwarf fuzzy lion in a 30 gallon, just not the snowflake eel.

SFEs require no less than 55gal. IMO eel tanks are the bigger the better..

Well that definitely gives me an excuse so I can tell my girlfriend I'm getting a 150 gallon tank. Woohoo I have a new project soon.
