New here, found something strange in my salt mix

Hello all. First, I'd like to say that I love the site. It's been a tremendous help in starting my first salt water tank.

I had to mix some more water this morning to get my salinity to the right amount and found THIS in my measuring cup, upon inspecting further it looks like a guppy. Is this normal to find in salt mixes? The brand I'm using currently is "Oceanic", recommended by my LFS. Anyway, here are two pictures:

Never found anything like that in my salt!! It's natural tho wouldn't worry too much unless your salt is giving of nitrates

lol indeed. I showed my girlfriend and she laughed for 10 minutes.

So far there's no nitrate spikes or anything.

Wait, it's too big for your tank, you should trade it in for a damsel.
