75g tank stocking help

Hi, when my 75g tank finishes cycling and I finish stocking it with LR and such, I would like to put in a snowflake eel and 2 black and white clownfish. Would this work? Also, can anyone recommend any other fish? Thanks.

I personally think the eel will either escape the tank and die, or possibly eat the clowns.

You could have him if you wanted, but smaller or non aggressive fish would more than likely be eaten by him

Eels do NOT go well with clowns. Heres a link to a helpful compatibility chart. PETCO.com - Saltwater Compatibility Chart

i have no idea. if your experienced enough you may be able to keep them peacefully. maybe if yo provide enough hiding places for the clowns..or get a clown thats already bigger than the maximum size of an eel.

Alright thanks. I think I might just not get an eel or arrange the LR in a certain way to keep the eel from facing the clowns or something.

Many people have eels with smaller fish. Yes its a risk but eels have very poor eyesite and if well feed are not going to go hunting your other fish. Also how can anyone say its gonna escape the tank when you have no idea about this guys tank. certainly he will put some type of covering on the tank like eggcrate or fix up some type of screen. Many people keep eels without them escaping the tank. I had a snowflake with several small fish and never had any problems. Infact I had a damsel that would chase the eel around my tank...
