  • 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
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!

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 :-)

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

  • Excellent results By Bull Hippo on 5/24/2015

    I had been using mesh filter bags from a large retail store and changing them once a week , The felt filter sock has tremendous filtering ability over the product I was using. The socks must be changed every three days or they overflow, They pick up so much more than the mesh bags I was using. I believe they have reduced the algae growth in the tank too. Make sure you order enough of them. I haven't came up with an easy cleaning method for them yet/
  • Great Socks! By ReefMaster on 5/19/2015

    These work great. After use, just toss them in the wash inside out with no detergent and they come out like new. I keep a few extra on hand.
  • It's a sock, it filters, no problems. By Bruce on 5/13/2015

    It's a sock, it filters, no problems.
    Filters well, durable, easy to wash and re-use.
  • Easy fit for my Seamless sump setup. By Mark H. on 4/24/2015

    Bought the 4 X 14 inch version as the filter sock for my seamless sump. It is a good fit and seems to work as well or better. BRS is very convenient and the price was good. I try to bunch up my orders and get free shipping.
  • Terrific Filter for fine particles By BobbyK on 4/24/2015

    I use this sock to trap fine dirt particles from entering my sump from my main, planted, FW tank.
  • Great Socks By Glenn on 4/13/2015

    Bought the 4X14 they work great and are what I expected.
  • Must have when starting a tank By Turf on 4/9/2015

    This was a must have when I started my latest 210gal and helped the cloud settle much faster then in the past.
  • Time Saver By David on 4/5/2015

    Great filter socks! The price is half of anything I can find at local retailers. At this price, ordering in bulk only makes sense.
  • Works just great By japicka on 3/30/2015

    These work so much better than the socks I was getting from my local fish store. Does what they are supposed to.
  • Excellant By Timothy on 3/29/2015

    These socks hold up wonderfully through extreme use. Highly recommended
  • Good Product Good Value By Benjamin on 3/5/2015

    I have purchased several of these filter socks from BRS over the last year. I like to change out my filter sock every three days if possible. I have purchased socks from my LFS and after washing the BRS and and LFS brand the BRS seem to be holding us about twics as long. Also the $ is fair the LFS are about $5 more.
  • A bit stiff By Russell on 3/4/2015

    Sock is a little stiff so it takes a little effort to get it through sock holder and cleaning but probably bodes well for long term durability
