This family of freshwater fish contains about 1500 species found throughout the world. They are generally small, hardy schooling fish. Most are omnivorous. Cyprinids have no teeth in their mouths, but they do have pharyngeal teeth.

Barbs, named for their barbels around the mouth, are Cyprinids, as are Danios, Chinese Algae-eaters, and White Cloud Mountain Minnows.
