It keeps popping up that skunk AKA cleaner shrimp are left alone but crabs would be unacceptable the other thing I need to ask is what about a golden-head eel would they work in a 40-45 gallon tank they stay small like max is 18inches while the snowflake gets bigger also, are they docile

I can say from experience that skunks stand absolutely no chance against a snowflake.

I agree a skunk cleaner will be a quick meal as will any other shrimp. Your best bet for cuc with the eel is an urchin or brittle star.

there are reef safe urchins and brittle stars, you just have to make sure your frags are glued down or the urchin will carry them away

Sorry, but I would have to say no. That tank has a very small footprint
