Live food.

Ok I already have a pretty good colony of brineshimp in a 5 Gallon and I feed those off as often as i can.

When I had my fresh water cichlid tank I raised live bearers to be food for my cichlids.

Can I do the same for my FOWLR tank?

I am thinking of getting a 10 Gallon and putting mollies and getting the babies.

Won't have much nutritional value for saltwater fish. A SW fish requires a different food then freshwater fish to get the needed fat content, nutrients and such. That being said, i have fed ghost shrimp before for a fun treat. But as far as a normal source, you may even be better to buy freswh seafood and make a blend, or use high quality fozen, flake, or freeze dried combos.

You can soak the brine in SELCON for added nutrition.
