Filter socks are the most convenient form of mechanical filtration. They remove excess food, detritus, organic waste, dust, and other particulates. Removing these particulates from the water column will reduce the amount of organic matter that produces ammonia and other undesirable substances in the aquarium. Filter socks also help prevent larger objects, such as sand, crabs, snails, etc. from damaging pump motors. Regular filter sock use will lower organic levels and result in CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER!
Monofilament nylon filter bags provide an exceptional degree of uniformity and mechanical strength. The filter media is manufactured into a mesh in which each strand is a single fiber. The fibers are woven into a precise pattern and thermally bonded to enhance mechanical strength. As a result of their construction, nylon monofilament filter bags are ideally suited for filtration applications that require high solid loading capacity.
