I agree that it is cruel and at the very least leaves you with fish that will harass future additions. I was just not sure about potential problems beyond that. Certainly not saying it is the ideal way to go, but he's already got them in there.

I totally agree that going slow is the way to go. The store telling him to add more soon makes no sense.

All of the corals are doing fine and the damsels (green chromis) are doing good as well. The only issue now that I really see is the brown algae is still spreading. I tried using a vacuum but the one I got was way too big and it sucked up a bunch of water way too quickly. I'm not quite sure how to vacuum it without loosing a bunch of water. Some of the brown algae is in my overflow box as well and I need to clean that. I think I'm going to get a smaller hose tomorrow and try and vacuum again. Any other advice on getting rid of the brown algae?

Siphon it during your weekly water change. This way you already have fresh saltwater to put back in the tank.
