Mine has bit me, but it didn't hurt at all. Mine is only about a foot long though lol. My tank has a lot of flow, so if I don't put the food in it's face, it would never find it. I also know exactly when it's hungry. It looks at me with this face, and I just know. When I eventually upgrade, I'll get a zebra moray eel, since they look awesome and get bigger.

Also, snowflake eels will usually not bother fish, since they are not moray eels, and mainly feed on inverts like crab and shrimps in the wild.

Not at all, but I have a pretty tought crowd, the maroon clownfish tailslaps him even though I am sure the eel could eat him right up. I would not put him in with a mandarin or any small fish. I have heard stories of them eating all the fish in the tank...

I have a yellow eye tang, foxface, two true clowns, flame hawkfish, starry blenny, and cardinal... Think they could be victims?

The blenny is the only thing I would be even slightly worried about. Mine has slipped right under my maroon clown, when it was sleeping on the sandbed. It was really funny. My yellow tang also follows it around to make sure it's not screwing around.

I thought a snowflake moray eel was a moray just like a zebra moray eel, they are not piscavores however.

My teacher has a fully grown snowflake, and this thing is ugly, but it hasn't bothered the fish yet. He keeps a school of pompanos, and has a 1" grunt in there too. He also has a baby nurse shark but we're not talking about that lol
