Default African butterfly fish update

So for I found out that it's a female, she is getting along well with the severums and angels, (sometimes they confuse her fins with food) she likes flakes but she mainly eats bloodworms.

She still makes me nervous everytime I feed them because she jumps for her food, and I read that jumping is the major cause of death for them.

I had a butterfly fish about two years ago the are a very neat fish and mine would eat live bugs from my hands (moths flys spiders). mine was not very active untill feeding and never really jumped for food that is a new one for me. in the end my oscer killed it and i was very disapointed because they are a real intresting looking fish.
