IMO, the eel won't be comfortable or thrive in a tank that size. Eels are great fish but need a proper environment to do well, like any other fish.

Americans sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Current Tank Info: 37 gal; pair of mocha clowns, ywg and tiger pistol shrimp

Maybe you were looking at the size they are normally sold at because the yellow headed moray gets just shy of 3 feet...

At most I'd put in a dwarf or chestnut moray.
