Innovative Marine has created their own custom molded filter socks that fit their line of all-in-one aquariums. The filter socks hang perfectly in the flow of water coming through the weirs to keep detritus from getting trapped within other filtration components, as well as polishing the water for a crystal clear display. The molded hangers simply sit on the rim of the aquarium for easy installation and removal. Between filter socks and running a good quality carbon in a reactor crystal clear water is easily obtainable.
Note: Please rinse all filter socks in RO or RO/DI water before use
Filter socks are molded directly to the hanger and are not replaceable.
Hard to clean, but works when cleaned properly By Reeferon on 7/15/2017Reeferon would recommend this product to a friendThese socks get a bad rep because they are not the best of designs. They work fairly well when you clean them properly.
To clean them I sit them in a cup of a bleach and water mixture overnight. Then I clean them from the outside with a jet water spray (a shower head or a kitchen sink spray will suffice) I then let them dry in a sunny window sill to evaporate some of the residual bleach. It's a cumbersome process, but it works!
Wicked hard to clean By Roger Reef on 7/2/2017Roger Reef wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAlmost impossible to turn inside out to clean and too expensive to throw out.
Use innovative marine sponges instead By Rob on 5/26/2017Rob wouldn't recommend this product to a friendRead summary. These clog up for me and overflow every three days.
Easy to use but hard to clean. By Brandon on 5/16/2017Brandon would recommend this product to a friendWorks great as a filter sock but when it comes to cleaning these are a pain and not worth the time and effort. The material is slightly different than your standard 4" or 7" filter sock and doesn't rinse well. However, it does work and works well for what it is. Just throw in a bag of chemipure and go.
Kinda works By Devon on 1/30/2017Devon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe nuvo tanks were obviouly not designed to use this sock. The socks were designed to sort of fit where the media basket should go. Basically the sock is mostly submerged so it overflows very easily.alsoitmust be pished right up against the overflow or the water misses it completely. It can get into a bad position easily.
Also they are hard to clean.The black plastic part makes it diffuclt to turn inside out and blocks part of it in the wash.
I only use them because, unfortunately, there is no other option, and they work "ok" when clean, new, and properly positioned.
