" Sometimes when I put one food item in the tank, like a daddy long leg spider, the butterfly may lose track of it. When they do, they will get agitated and swum back & forth in a "search pattern" until they find it & then pounce. The other thing I have noticed is that while they normally ignore the other fish in the tank, there are two exceptions. First, when a fish accidentally swims between them and the unfortunate bug, they will bully them out of the way. Secondly, when I put a lot of prey in the tank, 10 or 12 small crickets from the pet shop, they will go into a shark like "feeding frenzy" and will chase and snap at smaller fish which make the mistake of being on the surface at the time.
