You may have mentioned seeding the tank with material from existing tank and I missed it I have heard good things about bio-spiraas well as some not so favorable. Negative results were attributed to improper freezer storage either from manufacturer or at place of purchase. With overfeeding ,seeding of the tank and the barb you may not need the product.Nitrifying bacteria are no doubt present but not perhaps in quantity that would allow for stocking too many at once. What cha think? :) OH! and lets not forget the catfish. They too are helping.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

thanks so much for the iput and comments guys! makes it all worth while to share it on forums. 1077...my concern of course is that by making a malawi tank, it is best to put all the fish in at once and i prolly will, since i'll be doing the mail order thing. i'm just gonna have to bite the bullet and keep up w/ water changes and testing for a few months until things settle down. i'm still a few months out, money wise, from ordering the tank stars.
