When it is used regularly, it can help prevent the build up of dirt and sludge, and also reduce nitrates and phosphates.

- Natural Bacteria
- Increases ORP

Directions: DO NOT OVERDOSE
Shake the bottle of Waste-Away, and then measure out 10mL per 10 gallons of aquarium water and add it to a high flow area of the tank once per week. Turn off any UV lights, and protein skimmers for 48 hours after dosing for the best results. It is common for dirty tanks to develop a temporary cloudiness and if this happens do not add more Waste-Away until it has cleared.
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.
Do not add more than one bacterial based solution per day.

using now for two months! By xiholdtruex on 10/8/2019xiholdtruex would recommend this product to a friendhave been using waste away for two months and have noticed gunk around my rocks and power heads no longer there so far so good thinking of using re fresh also
Kills fish By John on 6/24/2019John wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe product itself works, but be aware that even a slight overdose will wipe out your entire tank
I'm sure it works...but beware By Paul on 6/18/2018Paul wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAdded this to battle some brown gunk in my tank. By the 2nd dose, all of my SPS were dead/almost dead. Did a large water change hoping to save them and that's a TBD. Parameters are within reason, and Waste Away was the only thing added.
While I'm sure it works, I'm certain this was the reason my SPS took a massive hit. Hoping that since I've since stopped using it, they will recover. As they say, if the coral has a polyp, it ain't dead.
Best of the Bunch By Old Salt on 12/5/2017Old Salt would recommend this product to a friendI dose my tank weekly with Waste Away. I've tried other sludge-busting solutions, but nothing works as well. It's pricey and may not be cost effective for a large tank, but for a small or medium system, you can't go wrong.
