butterflies are not reef safe, it is a natural trait for them to eat such items, it was ill-advised of you to add that to you're reef, some butterflies live in reefs and do little to no damage, unfortunately you do not have one of those, you're only 2 options are to 1-take him out of the reef or 2-grow aiptasia anemones intentionally for the fish will tend to eat those over your prized ones

well the only reason that i bought him was that he is to be the only real reef safe butterfly and only eat pods and such as told by dr.foster and smith and multiple other sites and now he got the munchies for one of my condilatics
