Fish ideas?

I'm new to saltwater don't know much but I've had a good stable tank running for the past 6-9 months with only a maroon clown fish an a few peices of live rock, I'm trying to think of some cool exotic scary looking saltwater fish that would fit in my 30 gallon long tank can you help with some ideas? I really like eels! Nothing poisonous tho haha!

You could have a snowflake eel if you have a tight fitting top or screen. They get pretty big but are sedentary and don't use much room.

I had one in a 55 and that was fine. A thirty might be a bit small once he got a few feet long.

Yeah I would say that a 30 is defo too small for something the size of a snowflake IMO. dwarf fuzzy lion, flame hawkfish or a toby puffer would be cool in that size tank

Once they've established territory, they can be a little aggressive. You could put him in QT for a week or so, rearrange the rocks and then put him back in. He'll think it's a new tank and might be less aggressive. Might help, might not.
