I don't see a problem adding him first. They are pretty passive. What size is the one you are looking at?

Idk for sure but about a foot. Maybe a little less? He's In a tank with small damsels... So I assume he's pretty peaceful. And he eats silver sides.

Not a good idea .Anglers are ambush predators. If any other fish is smaller or even close to the same size and your angler is hungry it will be lunch no ifs ands or buts about it. This angler is almost a foot long correct? One that size will take down larger fish with no issues. Sorry for being so blunt and I hope I do not come off as rude but it's really not an ideal situation your planning these fish are not peaceful or passive when it's lunch time .

No! The angler I get will be like an inch at max when I get it. The snowflake eel is almost a foot. The angler will be a baby wartskin.

I think he meant when you said assorted angler. Which could potentially get up to 11 inch.

If I put the 1foot snowflake eel in my tank now and get a 1/2 inch wartskin angler in a couple weeks will they be fine? Or will the eel try to eat the angler?

IMO that is very high risk situation also because the eel is also a predatory fish. I wouldn't attempt it .
