Waste-Away Sludge Busting Bacteria Time Release Marine Gel - Medium, 2-pack - Dr. Tim`s Aquatics 

The gels are full of Waste-Away Bacteria that once placed in your aquarium will continuously release bacteria which consumes nutrients and breaks down fish waste; keeping your tank clean and water clear.

Dr. Tim`s Waste-Away is a unique combination of bacteria that attack and dissolve organic wastes in the aquarium quickly. Waste-Away works to unclog coral beds and keep filter pads freely flowing longer. This results in better water flow, more oxygen and a healthier aquarium environment.

Waste-Away differs from other sludge busting bacteria products as it comprises several species of bacteria that were isolated from aquarium or pond environments so they can quickly and efficiently clean your aquatic system.

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, removes cyanobacteria and aquarium slime, leaving your tank clean!
