    The eel is likely to attack and eat some your crabs and possibly the starfish. Crustaceans and small fish are part of it's natural diet. Having said that, it wouldn't deter me from adding the eel if I really wanted one...but that's just me. It's a good sized tank any many of the crabs will survive for some time, especially with lots of LR in the tank.

    he's not that likely to eat a hermit crab, though a regular one maybe, they are more after shrimp and fish
