Snowflake

Snowflake eels will generally not eat fish unless they are larger and the fish are small enough.They will eat any crabs or shrimp you put in your tank, that is what they eat in the wild, they crush things with their mouth and would have no problem tearing a pistol shrimp into tiny pieces. Snowflake eels go very well with groupers and other large fish, and considering you are setting up a 100gallon tank you probably can get away with putting in a grouper(most of which will grow to large for tanks under 150g), groupers make great tank mates for eels. Basically you can go one of two ways, you can get the eel and a few other large fish, or you could go with your pistol shrimp, goby and compatible fish. Hope this helped.
