I have on now and it look really happy its not aggressive at all i have 4 blue/green chromis with it and do not even "look" at those. My bloodfire shrimp is always with it and cleaning is mouth. I can even pet him without problems. Never looked at the top of the tank, my LR is set with cave and trench so a lot of hiding place is good. Mine love clams and table shrimp but dont like squid. Its a very strong fish mine is 2 1/2feet and move 20lbs rock when eating. Really nice fish i bought mine at my lfs it was in a 25-30gallons since no one wanted him i bought it and bring it home in my 80gallons and now have place to swim until i buy a bigger aquarium when i will move. If you have the place and the food lol go for it ! Mine live with my smaller snowflake and they go well along. Both of them love to be pet !!

I have heard they are pretty good as long as they are well fed. My main concern is him escaping as he will be in a predator tank. I didn't realize they were that strong. I may have to buy some bigger pieces of rock. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay and how much does he eat? Just trying to get the more specific info I guess.

I currently house a zebra with the following. Lion fish. Japanese leopard shark (banded hound shark). White spotted bamboo shark coral catshark. Blue jaw trigger. Lunar wrasse 8 different tangs. Big eye squirrel and red stripe squirrel Tusk and a few others. Blue spotted ray. He has never harmed a thing. As far as escaping make sure u have a secure lid and he should be fine. Mine is over 3ft. They do not eat fish not even silver slides. Probably the most docile eel u can get.

How big of a tank do you have?! That's a lot of fish! Lol, glad to hear they at least all get along well. Any pics of your tank?? I'm trying to get some ideas for rock structure for the eels. I'm a visual learner so pics help. Thx

1000 gallons. I have my rock stacked up the muddle over flow Box. The bad part is he loves it back there so he can hide and rarely comes out. The good part is he feels comfortable and happy.

That's a sweet setup! When we put on our addition my wife want a big tank that we can do sharks and rays in. That's a big system, I can only imagine water changes on that sucker. Thanks for the rock work pics, I'm starting to get an idea of how I'm gonna do this.

The only thing I would say is to be careful with adding Triggers or puffers with the eel. Since both types of fish are "nippers", the eels' rear areas will always be in danger of getting nibbled on.

Hope this helps.
