I'm actually very angry having just read the whole thread and am amazed that people are still trying to help you. In actual fact I don't think anybody can, it's about helping yourself.
You blatantly did NO research before plunging into the unknown and setting up the tank. I've been fish keeping for nearly 10 years and have had a genuine fear for saltwater tanks until recently!
Did you think it was going to be easy?
Your far too impatient and it's cost several fish their lives. You take matters into your own hands, buy ridiculously unsuitable fish and listen to nobody until the inevitable happens. Then you come running back for advice with your tail between your legs.
You even tried to blame your LFS for your tank crashing?!
Why on earth have you even gone marine? I know they're great, but you can't do it on a budget. As sad as it is, you need a decent amount of cash. I can't remember exactly what it was, but it was something integral to the marine system and you just flat out couldn't afford it.
Sorry if I have come off as out of line or a bad guy, but I'm not. You are.
Now for something constructive.
Restart the tank again. Listen to the advice your given and stick to what the members here say RELIGIOUSLY.
The members of this forum know more than any LFS and that's a fact with very few exceptions. The members of this forum aren't trying to sell you anything either. In fact pasfur actually tried to GIVE you an alkalinity kit!
Sorry if this has upset you in any way, and if I'm way off the mark I apologize. If indeed your LFS has completely done you over, then I am VERY sympathetic towards you. It's not unheard of and it's really not cool.
I wish you the best of luck and would love to see the tank thrive!
