Saltwater Feeder Fish

At the lfs today i went to the feeder section, there were goldfish, ghost shrimp, guppies, white shrimp and then a fish labeled as saltwater feeder fish. What kind of fish would this be? I dont have a picture sorry but im sure its a very hardy species and will probably breed in the home aquaria, just wondering what fish this is

I would like to know what it is because we suggest guppies as saltwater feeders.

forgot what it looks like, i think it looks kinda like a blue chromis except smaller and it was white, same color as the feeder guppies, a bit bigger, going at 99 cents each

yeah, remember a camera. i'm interested in seeing what it is, incase i do get the shark, or later on when i get an eel or lionfish. i'm sure it would be easy to breed being a feeder. about how big were they?

may be something eays to breed in a tub or too, i hope.

The best fish for salt, besides actual reef fish, are mollies as they are salt tolerant and actually come from a brackish environment. They are super easy to breed and raise at home. Guppies are good but never use goldfish.

i'm planning on breeding mollies and i breed guppies. i don't think i'd be brave enough to feed any of mine to a fish.

but i know that some seahorses may like to suck up some baby saltwater feeders. i think, i'm not for sure, i'm half asleep, but i thought i remembered reading somewhere that seahorses weould eat fry (fish fry, not seahorse fry).

anyway, musho let us know when you get a pic!
