You mean a sterilizer? Why do you call it a waste?

$50 on an external overflow from my LFS, then I decided to upgrade my tank and had it predrilled.

$8 for a cheap swing arm hydrometer, then I bought a refractometer.

$19 for a cheap air stone driven protein skimmer

$60 for a nicer venturi type protein skimmer on ebay, too many adjustments so I upgraded to the aqua-c

$20 for several misc plumbing parts that I thought I would need but bought 1/2 inch instead of 3/4

Cheap test kits here too. Bunches of them out of desperation.
Oh yeah, that short Kent scraper, I was too cheap to buy the long handled version, so I am grinching my teeth when I use the little midget every week...
The dremel tool I got for my boyfriend who swore up and down he could drill my 10g fuge for me and the 2 10 gallon tanks he practiced on.....

visi jet skimmer (junk) overseas seaclone skimmer knockoff (dumpster bait) Rio pumps (gather round, spin the impeller, where she stops, nobody knows..CLUNK)

The 2 most aggravating things I have spent money on that are especially junk are:

1. Mr. Sticky's underwater glue -completely stupid glue.
2. Underwater epoxy - yeah right.
