If i remember correctly than you dont have a skimmer? Most eels have bog bio-loads and you will need a good skimmer to handle it. I wouldnt put a 2ft moray eel in a 3ft tank, as stated by mr.x.

Yeah I agree actually. A full grown moray will not be happy in there plus you'd need a skimmer to cope with their bioload.

Yeah I don't want a full grown I'm scared of losing a finger or something that's why I'm looking for an eel that stays small that can't take off a finger

It will surely hurt when it bites but +1 you wont loose any fingers or limbs to a snowflake moray. Your talking big like zebra, green, spotted,yellowmargin,tessellated, and purple mouth is when you can loose fingers.
