"I have kept African Butterflies for about 9 years. I had one for 6 before he passed away. Most of the shops in my area stopped carrying them. I found one & my wife brouht another from the same shop on the same day. We keep them in a 50 U.S. gallon community tank. They generally ignore the other fish. They love daddy long leg spiders and moths. We have recently started feeding them crickets from the pet store, react like sharks at the smell of blood. When they see a single prey item, they will slowly stalk until in position & then move very quickly. I have seen them get agressive with each other during feeding time, otherwise they stay at opposite ends of the tank. Be warned, you need a tight fitting lid or you will lose them. "
