Questions arise first: What size is your tank and what inhabitants (fish and invertebrates) do you keep?

I wouldn't recommend getting one, as butterfly's need more room to swim. I am thinking your 50g is a "square" or box shaped aquarium? if so it is more in height and depth rather than length, and the butterfly's need the length as they need tons of room to swim.

I agree that these animals need much more room than you can offer at this point in time. As far as consuming your shrimp, most likely they will unless utilizing cleaning stations.
