I would say your are pushing the bioload of your tank with what you have already. SFE will add a large bioload in a tank that size. SFE are shrimp eaters not fish, don't get me wrong if there hungry it may try to eat a small fish.
I have mine in a 55 with small clowns and a purple pseudochromis and they are all fine.
I would either get a larger tank for them all or get a new tank for just the eel.

hmm yea the eel will eat small fishys and IDK about a 37 gallon it may be to small I went to my LFS yesterday they have a 2 foot eel if I didnt start reef I would so get one. I would suggest upgrading to maybe a 55 but a 65 is 18 inches wider which means more room. for that bad boy

You'd be amazed at what an eel can swallow. I think the eel in a cichlid tank is a very bad idea. The eels is a marine animal, cichlids are not.

I agree with fluff also don't be decieved at how big the jaw looks when it swims around thye open quiet wide. IDK if they unhick them or what but it deff. gets bigger when its about to eat. You could go to the pet store and ask them to throw a demsel in the tank and when you come back te next morning I can asure you it will not be there. If its hungary.

I feed mine twice a week, as much as he'll eat in one sitting. Because I'm not feeding him a livefood diet, it's a simple matter of offering it til he's done.
