I'm on my phone, with a bad signal. I'm having a hard time opening profiles. I hope the butterfly is the only victim here, I have friends with triggers that will kill anything in their tank.

That yellow tang may be next on the menu, he can better defend himself than the butterfly, but its no match for a trigger if it comes to that.

I would advise that you remove the triggers. I am reading your profile, it appears you were building a reef and then threw in two triggers. They are not compatible with corals, and your system is too small for the yellow tang. They need a ton of swimming room, despite being relatively small by tang standards.

Nah,..the whole idea of setting up this tank was to have a trigger or two,...everything else was a add on,....the few corals I have were by trial and error to see if the mertensi butterfly would eat it or not,..the triggers have had no interests in any of them,....
