IMO, the eel won't be comfortable or thrive in a tank that size. Eels are great fish but need a proper environment to do well, like any other fish.
The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes.

Maybe you were looking at the size they are normally sold at because the yellow headed moray gets just shy of 3 feet...

At most I'd put in a dwarf or chestnut moray.
