Does the eel bother you when you put you hand in the tank? Right now Im looking at a snowflake that is about 6 inch. If I do get him I still want to put a dwarf angel some kind of a tang and MAYBE a wrasse.

I have four large morays in my tank, I am not afraid to put my hand in the tank. I think if you are fearful, you should not get the eel. All you need is respect for it and its habits and it works out fine.

My snowflake never bothered me once when I worked in the tank. Some people hand feed them when they are that small, although I don't recommend it because they will learn that your hand in the tank means food for them. I used a feeding stick.

I have one that is about a foot long and he is great. They are really smart. They will find the holes that you never knew existed. Its a pig and eats everything. Great pets to have.

you can add lots more to your tank. I have a huge snowflake eel in my 92 gal. 1 maroon clown, 3 tangs, 1 angel, 1 huge panther grouper, corals, mushrooms, etc.. My snowflake will not attack your hand in the tank unless you have food in it. My wife learned the hard way. She was talking on the phone while feeding a frozen cube to eel's tankmates not pay much attention. The eel must have been very hungry and went after the food in her hand thinking it was a shrimp intended for him. He chomped down pretty hard on her finger slicing it open. That was the last time she talked on the phone while feeding our fish!

I do not agree that he can add "lots more" to the tank. I agree that he has room for some fish but it all depends what he decides to put in there and what type of filtration, skimmer etc. There is not alot of live rock in his description and high nitrates will become a problem with the wet/dry. I would consider your tank overstocked.

Wow your tank sounds over stocked. How long have you had it like this?
