I also thought that they are scavengers until recently.

I bought 5 medium size Amanos from Aquariums West couple of months ago. There were 5 threadfin rainbows in the tank for almost a month before I introduced the Amanos. I added 5 more threadfin afterward for a total of 10. I lost at least 1 fish every day or 2. After losing 6 threadfin rainbows and 5 Endlers, I finally got raid of the Amanos. No more death since.

Have I witnessed the kill? No. But with the amazing strength of these Amanos, I'm pretty sure they are capable of hunting down these smaller fish if they get hungry enough.

Check out this video! The rummynose tetras are as big as the Amanos! The ones I had were even bigger than my fish. :(
