I test the water daily and for ph,nitrite,nitrate,hardness, and alkalinity with the 5 way test strips.
Hi Mazdamarc- Welcome to the forum! If I were you (and I'm not) I'd go with Angel079's first suggestion and take the fish back. If the store protests I'd be very insistent!
I'm sorry you were given such poor information on your first foray into fishkeeping.
