I too have used Bausman's Tonic and it is a wonderful product.  It is available at
my LFS but I know of another place that carries it that would also ship it to you.
They have a website that does not show that they carry it but I know that they do
because I have been there and they always have big tubs of it in stock.  If you
e-mailed or called them I'm sure they would be happy to send some.  They are called
Wet Thumb Aquatics and they are an incredible hatchery located here in Michigan.
The link to their website is:
Log on and check it out!  If you are ever in southeast Michigan you really must
stop by and check this place out also.  It's quite an operation.
Good luck,
