African butterfly fish

I was wanting to add an African butterfly to my 55 tank. Does anyone have any experience with them? What's their diet? Are they compatible with my stock? 1 red tail shark, 1 fire mouth cichlid, 1 convict cichlid, 1 African knife fish, 3 angelfish, and 1 bushy nose pleco.

In my experience. If the fish can't be eaten it probably will be left alone. They will jump so keep a lid on at all times. Pretty hardy in my opinion.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.
