Rough Start! Almost there!

Hey everyone! I am new to the saltwater hobby! I started my cycling with damsels. I've done a lot of research prior to starting, but did not see the pros and cons to cycling with damsels! My LFS suggested it and I took their word for it! I am about 3 weeks into my cycle and lost my favorite of the 2 damsels I had! If I would have known damsels were used as sacrificial lambs I would not have went that route! I'm hoping the other one will be a bit luckier and make it! I will keep him just for being a survivor! Any ways, my LFS tested my water and said I still have a ways to go. They recommended quick start liquid to put in tank. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also what are some recommendations now that I'm this far? I have a few hermits 1 damsel and a couple small starfish that came out of live rock. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanx

I wouldn't not have added anything until your cycle is done let nature run its course I would just wait a week or so do a pwc and most if all just be patient
