Pipes in tank.

i would go with PVC pipes. the metal will rust, the pvc works great because with a hot glue gun you can glue substrate to it and make it look real

Also take into consideration the live rock structure. As the eel grows, it will be powerful and capable of completely knocking over the live rock. What type of eel are you looking at keeping? What size tank? Tankmates?

Absolutely!
My (2) Green Morays, 6-7 feet long, did tumble just about anything in the tank.
