White Ribbon Eel Experience?

Cruising the lfs's in my area yesterday I came across a White Ribbon Eel (Pseudechidna brummeri). After being turned off by the fact that it's a Ribbon Eel, which I've heard are very difficult to keep and will more often than not just stop eating - I did a small amount of research to find that the White Ribbon Eel isn't a true Ribbon Eel and is much easier to keep in captivity. They also usually max at around 40 inches and stay very slender. From what I've read, they leave fish alone for the most part but may pick off inverts.

Seems like an interesting addition. I've been considering a Zebra or Snowflake for my new 110 gallon - does anyone have any opinions or experience with a White Ribbon Eel. I may be interested in eventually grabbing one instead of a zebra or snowflake - any recommendations would be great.
