You might want to cut the lights a bit too(2hrs or so) until your resolve the issue.

10 days and you already added fish? I would leave the lights off while the tank is cycling. No need to fuel any nuisance algae.

+1 on that there in it for the money if you go in there looking for the most exspensive fish they will sell it to you. My local reef store actually will do a slight background check ask you a bunch of questions and make sure you know what your buying which I like.

Not always. My LFS refuse to even sell livestock until he's tested your water and is happy with it. I've seen him refuse people countless times.
