would a garden eel and golden dwarf moray eel would get along in the same tank? The tank is 6' long and 28" deep and 3' tall. The sand bed is 5 inch to7 inch in some places. The smallest fish I will have will be lyretail anthias so I don't think the eels will beable to eat anything. Could a garden eel and gdm coexist in a tank?

I've just started reading about garden eels for my seagrass tank. I think you're going to need a bit more sand. Also I dont think I would put them together with a Moray. I had a 16 inch Snowflake eat a 1 1/2 - 2 inch Yellow Tail Damsel.

GDMs only get to about 12" full grown and are considerred the most "reef safe" eel. I had one in my 30g that didn't even touch my clown gobies or fire fish which both could've been easy prey.
