Wartskin angler and/or eel

I have a 125 mixed reef wanted to know if anyone has a wartskin angler and/or a eel. Is there anything I need to look out for having them in the tank. Anything I should not have in the tank?

A number of people keep eels in the reef tank, some of the smaller dwarf eels do very well, and some people have even kept larger Zebra eels too. The thing is most eel will eat inverts, and some eat small fish, and they do produce a lot of waste, not to mention some of the larger ones can knock things over. If you want to add an eel then the smaller dwarf eels (golden Dwarf eel) is probably what you're look at.

The problem with any Angler fish is that they eat small fish, or anything that swims by them, so it's a risk keeping one in a reef tank with small fish.
A person who smiles in the face of adversity probably has a scapegoat.

Light travels faster than sound, this is why some people appear bright before they speak.

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful.

It is far easier to fool people than to show them that they've been fooled.
