  • 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.

    What is the micron rating for these socks? Thanks

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey David,
    Good question. All of our filter socks are 200 micron filter socks!

    I'm looking for a filter sock for my aqueon sump

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Hank,
    This will be the 4x14 models with the plastic rings :-)

    I use the felt sock with the plastic ring and would like to know how people clean them.

    Bulk Reef Supply 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.

    What is the correct size for a aqueon #1 sump?

    Bulk Reef Supply 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.

    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

    Bulk Reef Supply 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.

    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?

    Bulk Reef Supply 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

  • Much Better than others By Jb on 2/23/2015

    Very well built. Much better than the ones sold by MD since these don't fray. My only complaint is BRS not selling 100 micron socks. Other than that, these will outlast any other brand out there!
  • Great product By Terry on 2/9/2015

    The quality of this product is great .
  • Awesome Filter sock By George on 2/5/2015

    I use these on my 180 gallon reef. They hold up very well to constant cleaning and are very well priced! thanks BRS!
  • Great Product By Jeff on 2/4/2015

    Easy to clean. Great product. Will buy again
  • 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

    These work great, love them
  • 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
