It highly depends on what his "QT" protocol is.

He said he puts them in a different system and watches them for abnormalities. That's pretty much what the buyer is supposed to do isn't it? He said he holds them for a week then will mix the clutchs so they can pair up. He said that could take a week more til I could get them

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

When I got my sebea anemone I wad told it would be fine but I was in the same boat as you. They wouldn't take it back so I brought it to another and they gave me 1/2 of what they sold it for. So I lost a little but it didn't die!

Technically he is just holding them and culling any dead or soon to be dead, not QT (QT= medicate). Holding them doesn't mean disease isn't present.
