Brilliant. I might add a footnote: the ghost eel, which may or may not be a white variant of the ribbon eel, fared very well in my reef on a diet of 300.00 worth of blennies, gobies, and the like. Of course it would not touch the damsel fish. I believe the profile of fish it likes is one that sleeps in the open [it hunts at twilight/ night] and one that is cylindrical. I had to unbuild my tank to catch that fellow. He was over a foot long, and beautiful, but not in my budget: besides, I'm fond of gobies in a different sense.
I've always considered them Ribbon Eels. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. The day you can buy cheap feeder Firefish I'll bump them down on the list
