Not very good pics but its the best I could get, he's too fast for me, he owns this little cave in the tank, perfect little spot for him to chill, its the only cave in the tank that he could hide in, and that rock has the most under the sand bed space, excuse the wires I was just mocking up my taos.

Nice rock work. Are you going to add corals? I've started planting zoas and other encrusting corals once they are established I will add the eel to help take care of my chromis problem

Thanks, it took me about 3-4hrs of moving and taking a step back and making trips back to my lrs to get small filler rocks, and it was a big mess but now im happy with it.

Well guys I've switched to krill and im never looking back, he loves em! I gave him 4 and he looked starving so I gave him 2 more and he threw one up so ill stay with 4 for now. Hes so much more docile with a full stomach, I do need to feed my other fish before him though, my caramel clown was a little too fearless and came in to investigate and almost got chomped!

I have a 14 in long snowflake and he never bothers the other fish. He used to try when he was smaller, but I would tap on the tank and he would stop. Then I would feed him right away. He mostly eats silversides with a few krill now and then. I also have the top of my tank completely open. He never tries to get out any more. I guess he learned his lesson the 2 times he did get out
