Going to trade in eel

Lastnight our snowflake eel had a midnight snack of hermit crabs, so we are going back to the lfs and trade him in for a long nose hawkfish! I have heard that they have great personalities and I think we are going to get one

Did you not hear the people trying to help you and tell you that your tank is way overstocked and now you are going to add another fish. If i were you i would be takig more than the eel back. I would be taking a few more back and getting some more LR or something. We are just trying to help you out.

i would still lower the amount of fish you have. Not trying to damper your tank or anything like that. But you also have to think of the fish. Look at it this way. It would be like a family living in a closet. Wuld you want to do that. No and neither do they.

more importantly, research the fish before you buy them.....it is less stressful on the fish, and you.

for example, I pulled this off marinedepotlive.com

Keep with caution in a reef aquarium; may eat/nip at anemones, crustaceans, shrimps & smaller fish. Better in pairs.

From what you have in your tank, I would say it is not a good choice for you.

This is an advice forum, I ask for advice occasionally and sometimes I don't take it. All we can do is continue to offer advice, and hope one day it will sink in. Think back to when you started the hobby, I read everything I could get my hands on and still let youthful enthusiasm allow me to do foolish things.

Also, consider the fact that other people search this forum for answers. SaltwaterTeen isn't the only one who might make use of the answers.
