Doug, I agree with Dawn on all points.
I know the store, though I have not been in it for more than 15 years. I would be much more comfortable taking Dawn's advice over theirs, so just await her advice.
Too often store people just suggest this or that fish to deal with this or that issue, like algae; but this is rarely if ever the solution. Issues have causes, and if one finds the cause and rectifies that, the issue goes away without additional stress and harm to the fish. Algae is easy to control, naturally, as it is in direct relationship to the light and nutrients. But we can pursue this later, after the disease issue is addressed.
