Wow, looks like you are starting a cycle. The base (dry) rock did not have anything on it to start a cycle.
I kind of figured you bought the damsles to start the cycle (bad advice from your LFS, they made their money and you are losing fish....plus you will have to go back and give them more money to replace the fish you lost....).
I would take the rest back and do the fishless cycle.

My LFS wont take the fish back. Is there anything I can do to speed up the cycle? Buy more LR?

You can definitely add more LR, and this should help. Keep up with the suggested PWCs, add as much cured LR as you can....It's going to be tough to add other fish or get those damsels out when you want too.
