I get the feeling we have somewhat of a language barrier. 1)For what its worth I never advocate medicating a tank without a reason to, though I'm unfamiliar with the meds you recommended. 2) not all barbs are good beginner fish, tigers for example can be very aggressive.
3) Running a filter with no fish for a week does nothing for cycling a tank. 4) I'm not sure where you got only do 10-30% water change as often in fish in cycling (which is what you are recommending) often times 50% or more changes are necessary. 5) I have no idea why you want to turn lights out at feeding then back on, I try to mimmick nature with my light cycle.

Maybe do more research before administering advice.
