The light should be dimmed by using floating plants.

You could keep one Snowflake Eel in an aquarium with other fish that are too big to be swallowed by the Snow Flake Eel. Or you can keep several Snow Flake Eels together in a group with other fish that are too big to be swallowed. But keeping just a few Snowflakes together usually doesn't work because the dominant Snowflake Eel will make the others miserable. Some good tank mates for Snowflake Eels are Large Tinfoil Barbs, Clown Knife Fish, Pangasius Catfish, Large Rainbow Sharks, and White Tip Shark Catfish. Snow Flake Eels are often seen in aquariums with Oscars, other Neotropical Cichlids, and most medium and large size tropical fish that are too big to be swallowed by a Snow Flake Eel.
