    Hi everyone!
    I was wondering if a snowflake eel was compatible with damselfish, clownfish, dwarf angels, and tangs.
    Thanks

    I would say no to all. The eel would eat all the smaller fish and probably the tang, also, unless its larger.

    I won't quote the article, it'd be a lot to quote. But, you should be fine with those fish choices. Snowflakes are more hard shelled invert feeders then feeding on fish. But, they will become aggressive during feeding.

    I had a snowflake eel eat several fish.

    If you're going to do it, add him last. And he needs to be with fish WAY bigger than he is. So I'd say no to everything but the tang.
