Snowflake and chainlink eel

I was wondering if i could put a chainlink eel with a snowflake in a 77gallons at the same time ? I already have the snowflake who is really docile in a other tank im cycling the 77 for now. For sure there will be a lot of rock since they love that and its nice looking. Is anyone tried to mix those two ? I read it is possible on internet but im looking for advice. For now my snowflake is more ore less 8-9inch so i would be ordering a chainlink of the same size so there will be no canibalism
Should i try another specie of eel instead ?
Thk !

There shouldn't be a problem housing the two species together but take into consideration that the chain eel grows to be 2'4" in size and can require a minimum tank size of 125g. A good reference site is liveaquaria.com. There information tends to be more accurate and leans towards the comfort of the fish. Good luck

Yep i saw it on liveaquaria but a snowflake is about the same size and they say 50g. On other site they say from 50 to 125. I have a 80gallons and at my lfs they think it would be ok for housing it. Do you think i would be ok ?

Should be ok for a while. Maybe think about upgrading in the future.
