I don't trust the salt water from lfs. Most likely they use just ro water to mix salt. If you plan to put more corals, you need to get rid of that chocolate star fish and invest an ro/di filter to mix your own salt water. For all you know, your nitrate might be coming from your lfs salt water. It may be low on nitrates when you buy it but the tds could be too much.
