Are snowflake eels reef compatible?

Has anyone been able to keep a snowflake eel with corals? I really need to know because I think it would be ok since i don't think an eel would eat coral. Thanks.

They won't eat corals but they'll eat inverts and small fish.

They aren't reef safe in the sense that you cannot have a clean up crew with them. If you have aggressive skimming and filtration and do often PWC you don't need a clean up crew, but if it's going to be a first time reef I'd 100% avoid one. Just produces a lot of waste and disallows you from having shrimp crabs and snails.

Alright then, no eel. Maybe I'll pick up a 55g at the petco sale and just have him in one by himself lol
