Ok, more importantly get us the Nitrite and Ammonia, to check them against yours.

Is this a chain or a local mom & pop shop?

Great! When you get a chance, have them test it all then post the results.

I think you are going through a cycle.

ok, but if the Nitrite or Ammonia gets too high, it can stress the damsel out. It is essentially poison to the fish in higher concentrations. Keep an eye on those two parameters and post them periodically until the cycle is done.
