Do I still have to siphon the gravel?
Answer by ChewyJul 02, 2017
Although this product will greatly reduce the amount of waste buildup found in your aquarium, it is still recommended to continue doing regular water changes to maintain aquarium health.

I like to know if this product is good for African cichlids
Answer by ChewyDec 23, 2020
This cleaner is perfect for fresh water aquariums.

Is it safe to use with crawfish In the tank
Answer by ChewyJul 03, 2017
This is safe for all freshwater critters as long as the proper directions are followed. Adding too much of this product per treatment can be harmful.

Is it safe to use while your fish are in the tank as well (Beta and Emerald Cory catfish)?
Answer by ChewyMar 12, 2020
It is recommended to use this at 25% of a normal dosage to start if using while fish are present in the tank.

Waste Away works!!!

After pouring the required amount into my aquarium water, a few hours later the water looked like glass. This stuff is amazing!!!

Waste-Away aquarium cleaner

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

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

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!

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

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!
