Holacanthus ciliaris is an important benthic-feeding reef fish but the relationship between the composition of its diet and prey availability is still unknown. Here we determined the quantitative composition of the gut contents of H. ciliaris in São Pedro e São Paulo Archipelago, Brazil (SPSPA), and compared it to the abundance of benthic organisms in the area. Holacanthus ciliaris has a relatively diversified diet with more than 30 prey species in SPSPA, especially sponges (13 spp., average 68… 
A bonanza of angelfish (Perciformes: Pomacanthidae) in the Mediterranean: the second documented record of Holacanthus ciliaris (Linnaeus, 1758)
The second record of the Queen angelfish, Holacanthus ciliaris (Linnaeus, 1758), is hereby documented for the Mediterranean, through a single individual spearfished within Maltese coastal waters.
Spongivory by Fishes on Southwestern Atlantic Coral Reefs: No Evidence of Top-Down Control on Sponge Assemblages
TLDR
The effects of spongivorous fishes on sponges cover and competitive interactions with hermatypic corals is weaker in Southwestern Atlantic than previously reported in Caribbean coral reefs, and local human impacts can influence the observed patterns.
Native species exploited by marine aquarium trade in Brazil
Abstract: Brazil has an important role in marine ornamental trade, exploiting native species for both international and domestic market. A few works have previously assessed wild species exploited by
Prospecção química de esponjas marinhas e bioensaios relacionados às atividades anticâncer in vitro e de defesa em modelo zebrafish
TLDR
The data presented from this study represent a new contribution to chemical and biological research of marine sponge species from South Brazilian coastline, and point the potentialities of sponges to search chemical prototypes for drugs, especially related to cancer therapy.
THE IMPORTANCE OF CEARÁ STATE TO THE BRAZILIAN MARINE ORNAMENTAL FISH EXPORTS
O Brasil é um dos principais fornecedores mundiais de peixes ornamentais marinhos e Ceará é o estado exportador de maior relevância no país. Entretanto, existe uma carência de informações atualizadas

Spongivory by juvenile angelfish (Pomacanthidae) in Salvador, Bahia State, Brazil
TLDR
Findings indicate that juveniles of all three species of angelfish are generalists in the consumption of sponges in Brazil, a diet similar to that of the adults.
Foraging Behavior of Two Caribbean Chaetodontids: Chaetodon capistratus and C. aculeatus
TLDR
C. aculeatus is a browser on anthozoans, preferring hexacorals (scleractinians, anemones and zoantharians) over octocorals and antipatharians, and Chaetodon capistratus is an active generalist, taking more of a certain prey than expected when the prey is scarce and less thanexpected when the same prey is common.
DIETARY SELECTION BY CORAL-FEEDING BUTTERFLYFISHES (CHAETODONTIDAE) ON THE GREAT BARRIER REEF, AUSTRALIA
TLDR
Observed selectivity in the dietary habits of coral-feeding butterflyfishes may influence their spatial and temporal patterns of abundance and is likely to be fundamental in determining their responses to major disturbances (e.g. climate-induced coral bleaching), which alter the availability of different corals.
Sponge-feeding fishes of the West Indies
TLDR
No strong evidence is provided by data that fish predation is a significant factor in limiting sponge distribution in the West Indian region.

TLDR
Gut contents showed that calanoid copepods and other zooplankton comprised the major portion of the diet although benthic prey were commonly taken and the diet of Chaetodon miliaris appears to be relatively opportunistic.
Defenses of Caribbean sponges against predatory reef fish. I. Chemical deterrency
TLDR
There was no relationship between sponge color and deterrency, suggesting that sponges are not aposematic and that color variation is the result of other factors, and the invalidity of previous assessments of chemical defense based on toxicity was confirmed.
Marine Ornamental Trade in Brazil
TLDR
A series of urgent measures are suggested, including the creation of specific laws for marine ornamental harvesting and improving law enforcement to prevent illegal trade in Brazil, to alleviate ecological impacts.
Interspecific variation in distributions and diets of coral reef butterflyfishes (Teleostei: Chaetodontidae)
TLDR
Examination of within-reef distributions at Lizard Island, northern Great Barrier Reef, Australia, and compared spatial patterns of abundance among species with contrasting diets found there are conspicuous links between dietary specialization v. spatial patterns in abundance of butterflyfishes.
Foraging by the stoplight parrotfish Sparisoma viride. I.: Food selection in different, socially determined habitats
TLDR
It is argued that the access to superior food resources on the deeper reef makes territorial defence feasible for S. viride males, and the increased availability of high-yield food and substrate types coincides with the occurrence of haremic territorial behaviour in S. infections.
