Waste-Away is a unique combination of bacteria that attack and dissolve organic wastes in the aquarium quickly. Even with good maintenance and monthly water changes, sludge and wastes remain in the aquarium in hard to reach and hard to see places. Waste-Away, a 100% natural, beneficial bacteria-based product, works quickly to find, break down and remove these wastes.

Waste-Away works to remove aquarium gunk, unclog gravel beds, and keep filter pads freely flowing longer. This results in better water flow, more oxygen and a healthier aquarium environment.

  • Dissolves sludge and dirt
  • Unclogs and cleans gravel beds
  • Removes gunky wastes
  • Keeps filter pads cleaner and longer
  • Removes hidden wastes
  • Contains no phosphates
  • 100% natural

Waste-Away should be used on a regular (weekly) basis to keep sludge from accumulating which can negatively affect fish and corals.

Use it to help get rid of cyanobacteria, aquarium slime and to keep tanks clean!

CAUTION: When using in a tank with a large amount of sludge, consider a half-dose initially as the sludge reducing bacteria in Waste-Away may cause the oxygen level in the water to temporarily drop.
