Too soon?

I started my first SW FOWLR almost a month ago... I bought nice pieces of LR covered in corraline so at 1 month my power heads are almost completely pink and the back glass is growing patches... I have about 42 lbs of LR 2 striped damsels 2 clowns 1 ylw tang 1 scooter blenny 1 foxface 6 turbo snails 1 emerald crab and lots of nudibranches... The LFS told me it was too soon but everything is doing well... Will I run into some sort of complication??

7 fish added over the course of 1 month, in a 55g, is kind of asking for problems. I'd have to agree with your LFS. Time will tell - a month isn't a real long time in the life of a tank.
