I bought a bag of feeder fish for my turtle at the lfs, and i found this guy in the bag. Would really love to know what he is.

It is some species of Sunfish, but it is too young to ID to species. Not uncommon for them to get mixed in with feeder minnows, usually Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) or Green Sunfish (Lepomis cyanellus), but could be others depending on where the minnows were raised/collected.
There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error. - Egyptian proverb
