Moray eels?

Are there any moray eel species that would be suitable for someone starting out with marine/reef tanks? Furthermore are there any species that would be happy in a tank that's 55 gallons or less?

A 55 could house a snowflake. A dwarf golden could probably go in a 40 breeder but they're about $200 each lol. I think a 55 is min. For a snowflake. Any other eel and you'd need a bigger tank

Would a black edge/ocellated moray be happy in a 55 gallon tank?

And here they are. Out of a dozen listed, there's actually more that could be appropriate than I originally thought.
