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

Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?


Felt filter socks give the best qualities of trapping free floating debris to give your tanks water that crystal clear appearance.  Felt filter socks with the plastic rings make replacement quick and easy, and most sumps will readily accept the BRS felt filter sock.  In most cases we will always put felt filter socks in our sumps.


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.

What is the micron rating for these socks? Thanks
Question by: David on Sep 4, 2013 8:35:00 AM
Hey David,
Good question. All of our filter socks are 200 micron filter socks!
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 4, 2013 8:35:00 AM
I use the felt sock with the plastic ring and would like to know how people clean them.
Question by: Ken on Jun 3, 2014 7:03:00 PM
Hey Ken,
Some folks just throw them in the washing machine when they collect enough dirty ones. Personally I turn them inside out and give them a good rinse and scrub by hand.

I'm looking for a filter sock for my aqueon sump
Question by: Hank on Jan 26, 2014 10:06:00 AM
Hi Hank,
This will be the 4x14 models with the plastic rings :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jan 26, 2014 10:06:00 AM
I have a synergy reef systems sump. The exact same type as the one you guys have on the BRS160 video series. Just wondering what size you would recommend. I was thinking the 4x8
Question by: Alex on Apr 27, 2016 4:58:00 PM
Great question!
The 4x 8 will work great additionally we have used the 4x14's as well which allow for a little more time before changing.

Would the 4" be compatible as replacements for the socks that come with the CADLights SAIO series?
Question by: Lauren on Mar 7, 2016 7:53:00 AM
Great question,
We are not familiar with the CAD lights sock size. As long as the hole for the filter socks is 4" exactly our filter socks will work great! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

What is the inside diameter of the plastic ring for each of the sock sizes?
Question by: Mark Brown on Jan 18, 2016 8:37:00 PM
Great question!
These filter socks have a lip which makes the inside diameter not very important for measurement. These will fit inside of a 4" diameter hole perfectly however! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 26, 2016 7:36:00 PM
I have a Precision Marine Sump 48 Pro which is labeled to have 7" holes for the Filter socks. Does that mean I purchase the 7" x 14" socks?

Hello would this fit the reefer 250? Tried other 4 inch ring but no luck so far.
Question by: Carlos on Feb 4, 2016 12:29:00 PM
Great question!
This will not work in the red sea reefer tanks unfortunately. The only socks we are aware of the if the socks directly from Red Sea. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Is it acceptable/advisable to put bio-media in the socks such as Seachem Matrix or Brightwell Aquatics xPort Bio?
Question by: John Hildebrant on Jul 10, 2016 11:07:00 AM
Hi John,
You can put any type of media you choose into the filter socks, however for a media sock, we would suggest using the mesh socks over the felt, since little particles of media, like getting stuck in the felt socks and become a bit harder to clean over time. The mesh socks handle loose media much better while allowing for more flow through them. The felt socks are best for water polishing.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Jul 11, 2016 11:19:00 AM
Hi,

I've been using the 8" socks with good results - their also very durable and machine wash well.

1) Is using bleach necessary when machine washing?

2) What's the best way to tell when these socks need to be replaced (because of age/wear and no longer effective)?

3) If I wait too long will that contribute to an increase in nitrates?

Thanks,
Larry

Question by: Larry on Jun 12, 2014 5:31:00 AM
Hi Larry,
1) It isn't necessary (many people just use straight water) but bleach does a very good job of breaking down organics.
2)If they have holes worn thru them or if the stitching starts to come apart would be when I would start to worry about them :-)
3)If you leave them in the tank to long it won't be as effective. It is more of an opportunity cost, by leaving the sock in for too long you give a chance for detritus to contribute to the nutrients in the tank, whereas if you had changed it out you would have removed it from the tank before giving it the opportunity. In the end, there won't be any more nitrates then could have existed without it, but you missed your chance to prevent them if you don't change them.

What is the correct size for a aqueon #1 sump?
Question by: jason on Jun 13, 2014 3:51:00 AM
Hi Jason,
Either of the 4" filter socks will do the trick. I personally prefer to use the 14" even if its a bit long.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jun 13, 2014 3:51:00 AM
How often do you normally recommend you change the filter socks? what is the best method to clean the socks? if soaking - in what solution?
Question by: Don on Nov 19, 2013 5:11:00 AM
Hey Don,
The more often you change them the better, that way you can remove the solids before they continue to break down and add additional nutrients to your water column. You want to avoid soaps when cleaning them but its pretty common for people to use unscented household bleach in water. Be sure to rinse them and all them to dry completely.

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.

Filter sock benefits:


  • Regular use will result in crystal clear water most convenient form of mechanical filtration.
  • Remove excess food, detritus, organic waste, dust and other particulates
  • Convenient form of mechanical filtration
  • Prevents larger objects like sand, crabs and snails from damaging pump motors
  • Reduces ammonia and nitrate producing organic waste
  • Increases filter life

  • Eexcellent Filter Sock By Dave on 4/21/2016

    Filters great, plastic ring fits my Trigger Sump better than the supplied sock, holds up well in the wash, good price.
  • Easy to clean! By Tyler on 4/21/2016

    All of the filter socks I have purchased from lfs are hard to turn inside out and really clean. I only use the BRS filter socks now for that very reason. They are very easy to give a good cleaning to.
  • Works great By Victoria on 4/18/2016

    Nice and thick holds up to washing in washing machine
  • Great Socks! By Kman on 4/11/2016

    I ordered a bunch of these socks. They are great quality shipping was fast. They do what they need to. No complaints. If you need replacements or you are just starting out grab some filter socks you wont regret it. I use these after water changes and when I need to clean/stir the sand. Also when I blow off my rocks.
  • Great By CJ on 3/23/2016

    Run these on different brand sumps and fit all with no problems. Great replacement and nice price.
  • Great Product By Desertdawg on 3/23/2016

    I always thought filter socks were just an optional add on item. My tank look clear. I didn't need them.
    Since adding one I am amazed at how much clearer it is now.
    I spent the first week cleaning out socks everyday. They pulled that much stuff out of the water. 3 weeks in and they last about 4 days between cleaning now.
    My water is crystal clear now.
  • Good socks By Bruce on 2/10/2016

    Fits Good, Filters Good, Holds up to cleaning better than others.
  • Great product quality construction By 120reefer on 2/9/2016

    These are great socks. Quality built and made to last. Don't hesitate to buy these. They are not the cheap ones you sometimes see.
  • Love them By Jeter on 2/2/2016

    Great product and the price was great really well made...
