The suborder includes three families, 19 genera and about 120 species (Nelson 2006). The group is confined to freshwaters of Africa to Asia. No species is native to Australia, and only two species are currently known to have established populations in the wild in Australia. The classification of the group is reviewed by Rüber (2009) and Rüber et al. (2006). Many of the species are found in the aquarium trade.
