Ambassidae, or Asiatic Glassfish, are a family of around 40 species belonging to the order of Perciformes. The species in the family are native to the waters of Asia and Oceania and the Indian and western Pacific Oceans. The family was formerly known as the Chandidae, a name which ITIS continues to use. FishBase notes that Ambassidae, which was named by Klunzinger in 1870, has priority over Chandidae, which was created by Fowler in 1905.
