Snowfake eel/longspine urchin

Hi I was wondering if a longspine sea urchin would be ok with a snowflake eel
It will also be housed with a valitine puffer ,coral beauty ,zebra lion and a snail but these should be fine correct me if I'm wrong

The urchin will not eat the snail. Puffers can easily break the shell of the snail and can make a quick meal of the urchin. I would suggest going with a short spine urchin over a long. Just because eels don't have the best of eye sights and can easily run into it. I would just play it safe and get a short spine. All the urchins tend to be great algae eaters.
