We have a snowflake eel in our 75 gallon and he is starting to our grown it. He is about 14-15 inches long. The smallest eel I know of is the garden eel and they need a minimum of a 40 gallon and they are for expert aquarists.

Garden Eels

Really not many options for eels until you get in the 55g-90g range. Not only do eels get large but they also have a large bioload, so in a 30g tank this doesnt work. Its even a problem for the bit larger tanks and limits the amount of other stock etc.
