only bad product on BRS By josh on 1/4/13

i bought 4 and 2 fell apart almost instantly. the 3rd looks like it isnt going to last long either. and likely the 4th (small one ) will not last long either. the stiching that holds the drawstring in just came undone. i had planned on using these as media bags but now they are just trash. im afraid to use them on my tank for fear of clogging pumps or baffles.

Very good quality socks. I’m using only BRS mesh filter socks with draw string for more than 1 year.

Bought this to replace the JBJ Nano cube's default Carbon back. Filled with ROX .8 carbon. Water looks great and is notably cleaner.
Good product at a fair price By Andy on 7/21/12

It is a mesh bag so there is not a lot to go wrong but it is constructed well and I like the drawstring. Some others I have used use a large releasable zip tie and it is cumbersom.
Nice catching all the junk By Jason on 6/27/12

I purchased 3 of these mesh socks as well as 3 of their felt counterparts. The draw string makes them very easy to secure in my system. My 60g is lightly stocked at the moment so I only find myself removing these every 5 days or so...not due to clogging, but simply wanting to prevent them from becoming nitrate factories. They effectively capture a large percentage of the particulates in the water (and adventurous pods!) , but if they aren't changed frequently some items (algae, food, etc) will break down and make their way through the mesh material relatively quickly (the felt performs better in this capacity). Overall they've been very effective and completely did away with the salt creep I'd been getting from all the stray bubbles in my overflow/return. All that said, when I want my water to look truly polished I'll pop in the felt socks. Both materials have held up well for me through many (albeit gentle) hand and machine washings.

Bought this to avoid spending lots of money on carbon packs for my Fluval. I love that I can now just put carbon into the sock, tie it off, and put it into my canister filter. Saves me a fair amount of money doing it this way and the sock is also good at catching debris that might normally get back into my reef.
Good if your gonna run a filter block also By Daniel on 3/8/12

I have used the cloth filter socks and while they do collect more they need to be changed almost on a daily basis, switched to these for ease of cleaning but still need to use a filter block along with them

Cheaply constructed :( By Blake on 12/7/11

The stitching on mine fell apart after a few rounds of carbon. Unravelled. =-\ The stretchy mesh ones seem more durable.
