Dwarf Lionfish and Snowflake Eel?

Would it be an issue to keep these two guys in a 75 gallon tank? And if not, is there any sort of clean up crew I can run that wouldn't become dinner?

Totally doable if you have a tight fitting lid for that eel.
A CUC of snails would be just fine.

How tight of a lid does it need to be? Currently I just have a glass canopy, theres no "openings" in it anywhere, but ... its just a glass canopy, so there's not a lot of weight there.

Tight so the eel can't pop it up and get out if you can move it freely it's not tight

I had two snowflakes take a ride through the overflow and onto the floor via the sump. Be very careful and check for them often.

Yes def. need a lid on top and as long as there are no openings at all. I had 2 eels, a Black ribbon eel and a snowflake ee. I loved my ribbon so much because I had finally gotten it to eat after a month. There was a tiny hole near my protein skimmer and 1 day, they were both just gone. Til this day i cant find ny snowflake but I did find my ribbon after a few months :/.

I had a snowflake eel end up in the cup of my son's CPR Bakpak skimmer. Must have gone up the outlet tube. I never thought of that possibility.
