If your LFS is testing your water correctly, its ok to trust them, but I don't trust my LFS. I tested my water with my own kit and had them test it also to see if I was doing it correctly and there would be a difference of 15ppm+ on nitrates

You will see changes over the next few weeks probably, it will take awhile for all the algae to die off, water should clear up within a few water changes, guess it all depends how dirty the tank is looking haha.

I find that having like a HOB filter helps clear the water up a lot faster. If you dont have one, I wouldnt spend the extra money just to clear up your water a couple days faster
