Small eels???

Just got my rock and I thought it'd be cool to have an eel but I'm scared of big morays as I tend to have my hand in the tank a lot any suggestions

How big is your tank? What about an engineer goby? Mine is at least a foot long and looks just like an eel, everyone is always going on about the eel I have lol. Mine is named teddy bear cause he';s just a cute little mush, very non aggressive fish.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

They are peaceful and like lots of sand. You usually see them small at the LFS, but they get about a foot long and look very different at that point. Mine is about a foot long. Only down side is that he found a spot way in the back if my tank, so I see his head poking out every so often, but it is way back in a cave. My snowflake ell was much more visible, but I think that is partially random luck of where they decide to call home.

Only gold dwarf morays which get around 7-10". What size is the tank? Snowflakes only get about 2 feet lol.

I think you could possibly do a snowflake in a 40.
