Description

Waste-Away dissolves sludge and dirt in your freshwater aquarium!

Waste-Away is a unique combination of bacteria that attack and dissolve organic wastes in the aquarium quickly. Even with proper maintenance and monthly water changes, slime and wastes remain in places that are hard to see and hard to reach.

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.

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

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

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.
Cyanobacteria - Treat the cause, not the symptom. Cyanobacteria - Treat the cause, not the symptom.

Ratingdid not clear my cyanobacteria as hoped

7/17/2014 By: from singapore.

I am a little disappointed with the product as i had purchased it to clear my cyanobacteria in the tank but the bacteria is still there, my tank was very bad to start with as it is pretty new but i had some cyanobacteria on the front glass panel just beneath the substrate level, after dosing refresh for 10 days it was still not gone, will continue with another week plus the waste away that follow it and hopefully it will be gone.

RatingWorks great!!!

I've used many brands & products in the past, however this one seems to be working better then anything else. 48 hrs after the 1st use, the tank has become as clear as it ever been!!! Now, 4 weeks after, it is still as clear as can be.... I've been adding 1/2 the initial dose weekly between water changes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

RatingNot Really Satisfied

I have added this product to my aquarium twice and will no longer use it. First time I used it I added the exact amount specified on the instructions. The second time I used it I halved the dose specified on the instructions and still the same problem..........it seems to rob the water of oxygen, all my fish were at the very top gasping for air. Note from DrTim: As we clearly state on the back label this product can cause a drop on the oxygen level in your tank. Since every tank is different we urge staring with a half dose or even less. What the fish were saying in this case is that the aquarium contains a lot of dissolved and particulate waste that the bacteria in Waste-Away were feeding on.

RatingMade Water too Cloudy

11/18/2013 By: from Garden Valley, CA.

I have used products to clear up my aquarium. Including Dr. Tim's Clear up which I really like. But waste Away made my tank too cloudy and never cleared up. Even with cleaning out my filters. Note from DrTim: If Waste-Away makes your tank cloudy and the water takes awhile to clear-up then that is an indication that your aquarium contained a lot of waste (both particulate and dissolved). The bacteria in Waste-Away were blooming by feeding on this waste which is what caused the cloudiness. What this means is that your tank has a lot of waste in it and Waste-Away was doing what it was designed to do - get rid of the waste.

RatingWaste Away A-OK

This product, and in fact Dr Tim himself, was recommended strongly to me by a LFS whose owners I have found to be excellent advisers. I tried the product, met Dr Tim, and I have to say I recommend both highly myself now.
