Snowflake eel and egg crate??

Allright.. I have egg crate covering the to of my tank. With cutouts for pipes and hoses. I have TONS OF ROCKWORK 85LBS.

I will be feeding the snowflake eel 2 silver sides each day, if it is 6-10in, or 3-4 silver sides a day if it is larger then 10in.

I will also do 10% weekly water changes.

MY QUESTION: / I'm going to keep a snow flake eel.. Will a small one be able to escape through the egg crate? If so I could just order a big one that is 10+in. So he wouldn't be able to slip through the egg crate... Am I right?

Or I could make the sides of my tank (3-4in)all around just solid plastic.. Eels only try to escape mainly from the perimeter of the tank right?

Please help. Here are some pics of the egg crate and the tanks rocks cape... ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

I'm just kidding. I've had a few and they are the best escape artist. I've heard LFS say they go from tank to tank at night. Just do the best u can and hope when you find him on the floor it's not to late. Hehehe

And a big snowflake eel instead of a small one. My smallest fish is a clownish and he is at least an inch. My blue Tang is 3in+. My hermits will be fine do you think? And cleaner shrimp.

Don't feed it every day. Too much food. I feed my 1.5' black edge moray (a lot thicker than a snowflake) 3/4 of a shrimp every 3 days. I feed the whole tank every 3 days also and everyone is growing and isn't skinny,,,, at all! I would feed at most every other day and probably very three days.
