Filter socks are most commonly used in sumps to help trap free floating particles in the water that flows through the sock. The Red Sea Mesh Filter Socks are great for removing large pieces of free floating material from the water that flows through the sock. Mesh Filter socks are a thinner material than felt usually lasting a bit longer and easier to clean.
We do recommend having a few extra socks on hand and changing them ever couple days for best results. The Red Sea filter socks have a 225 micron rating to allow a majority of detritus to be collected while allowing smaller particles through. We have found with filter socks with a micron size below 150 can clog very quickly, where 225 micron socks can last a few days before they are clogged.
Compatible with Red Sea Reefer and MAX-S series of tanks.
Please keep in mind Red Sea Filter Socks have a diameter of 4.5" where most traditional filter socks have a 4" diameter.
Better than the felt but.. By Kasper on 3/6/2017Kasper would recommend this product to a friendMuch better than the felt. Easier to clean but it is still a very simple filter sock with a high price tag - fits the red sea which do not use the standard sizes.
Beats the felt By James on 11/9/2016James would recommend this product to a friendGreat mesh socks eliminates washing/bleaching the old style felt socks. Just a simple back rinse does it.
It fits Red Sea By p7willm on 7/18/2016p7willm wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIt's a filter sock. Not much more to say. The only unique thing about this one is that it fits the Red Sea without modification. The price is a bit high.
