  • Using Filter Socks in Your Reef Tank - EP 4: Saltwater Aquarium Maintenance

Quick Overview

Filter Socks are used on overflows to remove small floating particles from aquarium water. This can dramatically improve water quality and reduce maintenance on filters that would otherwise become clogged.


Felt Filter Sock is better at removing particles than mesh but can clog faster. Draw string attaches directly to plumbing.

Full Details

Filter socks come in mesh or felt and with a plastic ring or draw string. See below for differences and unique advantages.

  • Great product By Rich on 4/22/2016

    Much thicker than expected. Catches even the smallest particle. My tank looks so much better. Just change them out every couple of days, clean them and you are back in business.
  • Works Perfectly By Timmy on 4/4/2016

    Bought 5 of these to try on my reef tank and WOW! They capture everything and now I can't imagine not using them. I bought another 5 to have on hand so I can swap them out frequently.
  • Great socks By KerryF on 3/29/2016

    They're socks that work. Quality materials that I've come to expect from BRS.
  • High quality, high performance By dmolavi on 2/2/2016

    These socks are fantastic. They capture *everything*. I turn them inside out, toss them in my washer, and *boom* clean sock ready to re-use.
  • Really good. By Fabio on 12/18/2015

    High quality material. It captures fine particles really well.
  • Perfect as usual By Jessica on 11/28/2015

    Well I ordered the wrong ones which was totally my fault.. but they came in perfect and if I needed this type would have been very pleased lol.. Off to order the ones with rings (:
  • Seems to help By Nathan on 6/2/2015

    I wasn't running socks for awhile, and decided to try out socks. Seems like tank is cleaner and skimmer is working a lot less. (heavy stuff being caught in socks letting skimmer work on anything that doesn't get caught in sock). I have 8 or 9 socks, and wash them weekly.
  • very pleased By chris on 5/28/2015

    Very useful and cheep ...I thane them every 4 days with no problems...water is always clear
  • Great product By Bulldog on 5/20/2015

    All I can say is, everyone has commented on how clear my tank is. It was right after I installed these filters,
  • good construction, almost a 1/4" thick By chris on 5/8/2015

    good construction, almost a 1/4" thick. Drawstring well made.
  • Don't leave home without them By Jerry on 1/28/2015

    These socks work great. Can't imagine reefing without them. They catch 10 times what the skimmer will. When leaving on vacation I install tee's on my down-tubes to accommodate extra socks, so I can go longer between changes. Great product. Easy to clean as well. Thanks BRS
  • Will not fit on a 1" pipe properly By scott on 12/21/2014

    I purchases the 4" X 14" tie string filter bag. It will not close down on a 1" pvc pipe. I had to prop it up underneath to use it. I have seen filter bags secure to 1" pvc pipe ends before. Dissapointed.
