  • 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. Plastic ring fits common sump holders.

Full Details

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


  • Mesh: Thin, doesn't clog as easily as felt
  • Felt: Thicker, better at removing particles, but can clog faster
  • Plastic Ring: attaches via ring that fits common sump holders
  • Draw String: attaches directly to plumbing
  • BRS recommends starting with felt socks and switching to mesh if they clog faster than desired.

  • Better Filters By Jason on 1/22/2015

    Great Filters
  • Great socks By Dan on 1/20/2015

    Have used many brands of filter socks over the years. These ones from BRS by far last the longest.
    I'm from Canada and I can purchase other socks from my LFS but they don't stand up wash after wash.
  • Washable & Re-Usable - Durable By Josh on 1/17/2015

    I use these every week and they get washed every week. Have not started to break down yet after several months. Great Product, would expect nothing less from BRS!
  • Killer Sock By Craig on 1/16/2015

    I have used many different name brand socks over the last 15 years and these beat all of them. Heavy duty and wash very well.
  • Great sock By Jordan on 1/16/2015

    I purchased the sock and has help up better than other after washing. Will keep buying.
  • Works great By Ryan on 1/8/2015

  • Quality Filter Socks By Nate on 1/7/2015

    These are durable high quality socks that work well. I will definitely buy some more of these in the future.
  • I would recommend to a fellow reefer By Michael on 1/4/2015

    I have been using these socks for over a year and I like them. I just throw them in the washer with peroxide when I have 5 or 6 of them let them dry and reuse them. Great product
  • Best Sock for the money By Daktari on 1/2/2015

    All the major online reef suppliers carry filter socks but I have found BRS socks to be the best. I prefer the 14" socks because I believe the increased surface area allows for less frequent changes. This is important to me because I am disabled and most simple things are a chore for me.

    I use 2- 4 x 14" socks on a mixed 180 gallon reef and change the socks every 4 days. I have several tangs and a pair of blue chin triggers. All are voracious eaters resulting in a high nutrient level which can be a problem for my SPS.

    I turn the socks inside out and throw them in the washing machine with a second rinse. I have not used bleach but may try it after reading the other reviews.

    These socks are cheaper and about 4 inches longer than the competitors brand. I also think it beneficial to support BRS for the quality videos which I really appreciate.
  • Outstanding By Clayton on 12/30/2014

    The only filter sock I use anymore. Affordable and washable. Toss a dozen into the washer with a capful of bleach and wash. Use the extra rinse cycle on the washer for 2 rinses, and then rinse them again with RO/DI water and you can make them last a few years.
  • Great filter socks By BrianH on 12/30/2014

    These socks are well made and durable. I have bought cheaper socks in the past, but no longer will I do that because these are so much nicer and seem that they will hold up.
  • Excellent Quality By Chris J. on 12/29/2014

    I use these socks in my 65 gallon sump with dual returns and change them out weekly. Have 4 sets of 2 to have enough for a weekly change. Throw them in a bucket with some water and a little bleach and soak overnight and then rinse and in the washing machine. All have stood up excellent and come out looking just like new ones. None have broken down yet. Great product and will keep purchasing from now one. Thanks BRS
