Description

Dr. Tim's Aquatics Waste-Away Natural Aquarium Cleaner for Freshwater Aquariums helps keep your aquarium clean with crystal-clear water.

Instructions

Caution: When initially using Waste-Away we strongly recommend adding only a half of dose. For especially dirty tanks this may temporarily cause cloudy water and a low ammonia value. Do not overdose as this may cause a drop in oxygen level.

One week later start with the regular dose. Shake well before using. Dose 10ml (1 capful) per 10 gal. Use once per week as a natural way to keep your aquarium clean.

    Waste-Away aquarium cleaner

    By Cooper on Feb 24, 2021

    So far so good. I have not had a chance to clean the tank to really know if this is working or not. It seems to be, the tank is clear and I don’t see any floating poop. Big fish equal big poop.

    No better than pouring water in your tanks

    By Indigo on Dec 20, 2019 top250Contributor

    I have both tropical and cold water fresh water tanks and when I read the reviews, I thought, "Great!" and dumbly bought two bottles so I wouldn't run out. I wanted to give this product the benefit of the doubt, so have been using it in all of my tanks for almost 3 weeks now and I see absolutely NONE of the benefits claimed by the manufacturer. Waste-away indeed...of my hard earned money. Don't waste yours.

    Didn't work

    By Evie on Oct 9, 2019

    My tank water was green. We couldn't even tell there was fish in it unless one swam close enough to the glass but you couldn't even tell it was actually a fish.

    Wish I found this sooner!

    By Kodiaksmom on Aug 4, 2019

    This product is awesome! I wish I found it sooner. I have been battling algae blooms and most algae killers aren't good for shrimp / snails so I just kept trying to change the water constantly. I did a full water change and added this product. Normally I have green water back in 2 or 3 days... it is still crystal clear! I will keep buying this as long as I have a fish tank!

    Great Product

    By Taylor on Jul 31, 2019

    I used half of the recommended amount the first time as I was afraid of the oxygen balance. Within 3 days my tank water was crystal clear and is still clear 2 weeks later!

    Great product

    By bonlouhal on Aug 1, 2019

    I wasn't really sure how this would work, but so far I am satisfied. You still need to vacuum the gravel, but it is much better.

    This product rocks!!!

    By Bebe on Apr 27, 2019

    I've been looking for something to take the smell out of turtle keeping. This stuff really works wonders. I still do my weekly water changes but the tanks used to smell something awful by day 3 after a water change and now that gagging smell is no more. I couldn't be happier with a product than I am with Waste-Away.
