I think if you put 2 eels and a fuzzy dwarf in your 55 you may be overstocked or close. Our LFS says not to put 2 different types of eels together. I'm not positive thou. Someone with more experience in that area will chime in I personally would recommend 2 fuzzy dwarfs and one of the eels. We will be adding a Humu trigger to our 75 but they need a minimum of 70 gallons. Good luck!

Humu huma triggers need a 6' tank at full size...... They get over 8", are mean, swim a lot, and are messy eaters.

I know they swim a lot and are messy eaters which wouldn't be a problem with our filtration. But from who I have talked to and research I have done they need a minimum of 70. Granted more is always better we will be using epoxy for the rock so he/she wouldn't knock it over.

Green wolfs are difficult to keep I believe.


Edit. Nevermind I was thinking of a garden eel

They actually need a min of 6' tank. Ask the trigger owners. FTMMWS will tell you.
PS. I have a trigger. I wouldn't put one in a 4' tank.
