Waste-Away is a sludge-busting beneficial bacteria that naturally dissolves grime and dirt that can accumulate in an aquatic environment.  It not only rids cyanobacteria, but can also prevent further buildup when used regularly.

Waste-Away`s fast acting formula is great for unclogging the gravel bed, and will extend the life of filter pads, keeping them flowing longer.  Better flow, the more oxygen exchange in your water to help increase the overall health of the aquarium.


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


  • Shake well before use
  • Minimum dose is 10 ml per 10 gallons of aquarium water
  • Waste-Away should be used on a weekly basis to keep sludge from accumulating
  • Use will help get rid of cyanobacteria and slime
  • Consider half dosage for first dose, as use may cause oxygen levels in water to drop temporarily
