great looking predator tank! once you a
dd some awesome fish its gonna look fantastic!
The Tessellated Moray Eel will grow extremely fast and it will not be fun to try to remove it once it has been introduced.Also they are downright nasty in a small aquarium so sticking your hand in the tank will be a dangerous affair.I know Eeels are fascinating but everyone I know that has tried one ends up with a huge headache and wishes they would have never added it.I have been biten by one of these and let me tell you it is not a pleasent experience. IMO if you are deadset on trying one I would pick a Snowflake or Chainlink.Tank looks great!
snowflake or chainlink are your best bet, i have had both without any problems.
IME, SFE's get aggressive once they hit 18" - 20" or so...I've lost tankmates, and was bitten twice, once, the eel had to come out of the tank to bite me (I was working on the lighting above the tank).
I'd recommend a medium-bodied lionfish species over a volitans as it looks like you have an 18" wide tank.
Nice !! Can hardly wait for the adds !! : )
Your tank looks great!
Right now I have a lot of fish in separate tanks growing out for the 210g tank.

I have a nice few videos on youtube of all my different stuff
Personally, I'm getting into the predator fish tank also.
Shadyzee, I have no clue if this is right or not, but I would say as long as the fish aren't very aggressive, are well feed, and have a plenty of space, I would say you would be fine.
