Yellow head moray ate all my fish :( help

I also have a 12inch snowflake eel but never had a problem with him until I added my yellow head. Bought him when he was small about 6inch long have had him for almost 4months but ever since I added my yellow head my maroon clown fish 3 inch long disappeared then after my panther grouper 3 inch long then my lunar wrasse 5inch long. I witness my yellow head attack and eat my lunar wrasse so I know it's him will performing a water change. Today while feeding both eels I notice that my yellow head looked longer almost looked bigger than my snowflake??? Hardly can tell how long he is since he's always hiding. Looks like he's out growing my snowflake eel. Question is what fish won't my yellow head be able to eat???? Btw my yellow head was my last fish I put in my tank.

2 aggressive fish in that tank... cant think of anything you could put with them... crazy small tank for a grouper too... that type of fish would probably work but you cant get one big enough to not be eaten in that size tank.

i wouldn't put anything in until you upgrade personally especially as the snowflake will eat any crustaceans due to type of eel and as yellow head is a fish eating will probably look at all fish as food. I would look at maybe puffer or lion when you upgrade though

I'm not going to put anymore fish until I upgrade to a bigger tank. So puffers and lions seem like the best? Any other predator fish?

Not just predatory, I've never kept them but from what I understand fish eating eels will have a pop at any fish that isn't too big to take on the reason I say puffer or lion is they have some sort of defence compared to other fish

You will need very aggressive fish and they have to be good size

That's what I can think of but I've also read that the yellow head moray have ate lion fishes that were a good size?!? Is this true? Can't see that happening. I would hate to give him away since I'm very attach to both eels their my favorite fish. But a tank doesnt look as great with out fish actually swimming.

The yellow head will grow to 3ft. I don't see any fish being able to survive with him long term
