i think it will be fine if you keep your parameters stable.
i would get on a regular water change regimen. everything you need is in your salt mix.

You really only need to dose kalk and stuff when you get into tons of coral and your calcium and other trace levels are being depleted faster then your water changes can keep up with. There is a very delicate balance between calcium/alk/mg that shouldn't be tampered with unless you really have a need and know what you are doing.

Not blaming you or trying to make you feel bad. I have lots of bookmarks on good reading pertaining to the subject if you are interested.

dont cut them out of the will just yet. All LFSs will give bad info. Let the quality of their goods be your judge.
