Tangs And Moray Eels

My tank has a few tangs in it but how would they react to a eel? what fish are safe to mix with tangs?

Eels will eat whatever they can fit in their mouths. Personally I don't like mixing eels with fish. However, it can and is done. Tangs get along with just about any other peaceful fish. Tangs do have tendencies to attack conspecifics, so keep that in mind.

Zebra eels are fish friendly. They grow to be about 3-4ft long and about 2-3 in in diameter. They need stable secure rocks to live in since they are fairly strong.
