I've read before that it's better to feed marine fish on marine food. 
It's something about the type of fats in the marine food versus the
freshwater food.  Unfortunately, the only marine-ish live food that I
usually see at the aquarium store is brine shrimp, and these are reputed
to not have the fatty acids that some marine fish need.
