Ecoxotic EcoCham Cleaning Cloth
The best aquarium cleaning tool you'll ever use! The EcoCham is not a cloth towel or leather chamois, but a super absorbent cleaning cloth every aquarist should use.

Often times, we pick up an old towel or grab a roll of paper towels and some spray cleaner. The reality is, each time you use a paper towel or chemical cleaning product, you're creating paper and chemical waste. Not very eco or fish friendly. Now, there's a better way! EcoCham is the answer... and you'll never use another chemical cleaner or paper towel around your aquarium again! Simply rinse and keep moist in it's protective case after each use, now that's simple. Only $7.99.
