I have had my snowflake eel for 3 years now and he leaves all the other fish alone, but he will go after any shrimp or crabs that are not in their shell, he did keep a pet pepperment shrimp for about 6 months before he ate him. Now he's about two foot long and squeezes in his 1.5 inch pvc pipe. I feed him chopped shrimp the kind you buy in the store, and frozen silversides, sometimes I will give him some crab and squid when I can find it.

Yes. Reef and fish safe. Frozen krill. When he gets older/bigger. Watch for missing crabs but if fed properly he shouldn't be interested in them.

My teacher has a fully grown snowflake eel at about 2-1/2 ft long and it never bothers the fish, but he is fed live shrimps so it will definitely kill any invert you put lol.
