I've never kept African Butterfly fish, but I do know they prefer live foods, at least initially. Like most fish, you can slowly wean them off by mixing other foods in with the live.

I think you're okay feeding the crickets. They are surface dwellers so whatever you feed will need to float or sink very slowly.

I've heard of people feeding them crickets. Mine likes some frozen foods like bloodworms. I prepare the worms for the apistos in the tank but he likes to swoop down and grab a mouthful! He also loves floating cichlids pellets. I work at petco and the ones there always respond to eating the pellets if not anything else.
