These fish belong in the Order Perciformes and Suborder Percoidei as members of the Family Carangidae (Jacks) consisting of 4 Subfamilies, 32 genera, and 140 species.

Basically, there are two species of interest in this category. The first is the small, as a juvenile, the quick moving golden colored, black barred Pilotfish/Golden Trevally. The second is the Atlantic Lookdown, and both require very large aquariums!
