The Goodeidae family is comprised of two subfamilies, the Goodeinae and the Empetrichyinae, which contain about 45 species from 21 genera. Chippewavalleyaquatics is focused mainly on species in  the Goodeinae subfamily. These species are the "splitfin" livebearers endemic to Mexico, some of which are found only in very small springs and streams in Central Mexico.  The name Goodeid came from the first genus  Goodea, described in 1880 by David Star Jordan, named for George Brown Goode ("Goodeids, Classification").
