The point is on a shipment day, fish are moved from QT to the front as they are replaced by fish that just came in. ;)

Ohhh, makes sense. Heh, I don't buy fish from PetSmart or PetCo (we don't even have one here), so I wouldn't know how they work, only stores I've bought fish from is Big Al's. xD

About a week or so, maybe two weeks if you're extra paranoid. The longer the better.

With my luck it'll look like everything is fine and then as soon as I add my betta all hell will break loose.
