i would stay away from miracle mud, if u want to use mud u have to collect from an estuarie, most are protected and u have to get a permit to collect.
u can collect at umhlazi, will check, enquire at front office, then when u have it, let it settle in its own tank and after a week or 2 once all the die off has happened it should be fine to plumb into the main system. these work well and add a nice diversity of bio-life, and only really need to be seeded every year or so with top-up
