You might want to think about getting your own test kit, rather than having to rely on the lfs

Diatoms are strictly from being a new tank .
And diatoms feed on silicates .
They will go away as soon as the silicates are consumed by the diatoms .
Nothing to worry about , but I still think it's too new for a nem .
But as a man once told me before ,
If you want something bad enough you will get it .
Keep a eye on the nem . If you start noticing it losing colour ( bleaching )
It's mouth staying opening ( gaping )
Wondering a lot
Or it not attaching to anything look for a stable home for it

I am looking for a tds meter .
But I will say .
I use API test drops .
And never had a issue with a faulty reading .
Water changes every week
I use a refractometer for testing salinity
RODI water
Reef grade salt
Because I have 45+ corals and frags I had to start dosing alk/cal buffers .( bionic )
But other then that everything is growing and looks amazing .

Yeah, I finally got one myself. It's kind of interesting to check after storms are around and see the difference in solids in the water. Crazy swings sometimes
