if anyone needs more help ive found as you know the first flyl through in the tunnel is on the left you can usually time it to get two hits in on the first fly by and drop its shield. now just face backwards zoomed in until you see it again then orb it. slowing your self down makes the timing way easier.

Got these steps by watching a walkthrough: 1) Bop the left one with a flufffruit at the very start. It will fly away. Bop the one that stays to remove its flames. 2) They will trade places; you will have to bop the one in flames twice with fruit to remove the flames. 3) As you go through the tunnel, bop the one in flames until the flames disappear. You can do this during its first two passes. 4) On its 3rd pass through the tunnel, throw an Illumina orb at it JUST as it comes in.
