These fishes belong in the Order Perciformes and Suborder Percoidei as members of the Family Nemipteridae (Spinecheeks), which include 5 genera and 64 species.

Those in the Genus Scolopsis have the most interest to hobbyists, as they are fairly easy to maintain in closed systems. Some of these fishes are also called Breams.
