I keep from feeding him live food and he has yet to get aggressive with anyone but is this just false hope? I read that they can be kept with smaller fish with caution so long as they are kept well fed, and not with live food. They eat mainly crustaceans in the wild so I thought this sounded accurate and believable. I would like to move everything into a 40 Breeder, upgrade lighting and get a BTA, if my clown was to host the anemone would he be safer?

I love it!! You did a great job making some good sized caves, and it looks like your eel likes it too- he was that the top cave, then the bottom, then the one on the left. Haha. Really great job!

@lakaiguy, I don't know why it's so white, my eel likes to dig in it a lot so that maybe part of it, I think it's carribsea live sand. Is it bad that its that white?

@beengirl Thanks, he does seem to like it a lot, and I added a PVC tunnel under the sand but he didn't seem too interested in it until this morning when I found him in it.

@gman42 Thanks, I'm glad that it seems like I'm doing this right, since this is my first saltwater tank.

Thanks for everyone's input and advice.

The sand being too white? It should be white! Lol unless you have Fiji pink or Tahitian moon sand. When you but substrate it should always look that color. If it doesn't, you probably have algae issues. Get a sand sifter of some sort.
