Zig Zag Yellow Tail Eel

Hello, I have some questions on Yellow Tail Eels as there doesn't seem to be a whole lot on them (Note: I'm not talking about the regular huge Zig Zags). I have a 55 gallon tank with plenty of plants and caves

My first question is how big do these eels get? What I've seen is that they only get up to 7 inches, which is smaller than Peacock Eels.

My next question is how fish-eating prone are these eels. Will they eat 2 inch long fish? And are bottom dwellers like cory cats and otos okay with them? And are they okay with Kuhli Loaches?

My final question is will they eat 2 inch Dwarf Mexican Crayfish or shrimp (like Ghost Shrimp)?

Thanks in advance
