Buh-bye, filter socks!

The ClariSea Fleece Filter Roller is a high efficiency water filtration system that effectively removes suspended particles such as: micro algae, detritus, food, organic waste and gravel dust from the water column.

Rising levels within the filter trigger the Clarisea`s sensors, signaling that the filter fleece is saturated with the suspended particles and then rotating new clean filter fleece in.  Constantly rotating the fleece leaves no chance for any of dirt to breakdown any further, leaving your water cleaner than ever and you without the headache of switching out filter socks every few days.

Suitable for use in marine aquariums, freshwater aquariums, fish-breeding systems and propagation systems for corals.


  • Brilliantly Clear WaterA ClariSea filter will completely replace the need for high maintenance filter socks and result in brilliantly clear water in your aquarium.
  • Light PenetrationThe use of a ClariSea fleece filter will ensure the highest possible filtration efficiency for optimal light penetration and growth of your corals and plants.
  • Reduced Accumulation of Organic WasteContinuously removes detritus & organic waste from the water column preventing breakdown to nitrate & phosphate in your aquarium.
  • Reduced Load on Protein SkimmerThe ClariSea fleece filter dramatically reduces the load on your protein skimmer by removing even the smallest of particles.
  • Reduced MaintenanceConstant filtration results in reduced maintenance of pumps, wave makers and protein skimmers, plus... no more socks to clean.
  • No More DetritusA ClariSea fleece filter will noticeably reduce the accumulation of detritus in your aquarium substrate and sump.

Works Great!
Quality consitruction
A little pricey
I use a pair to handle flow from a Sicce ADV 9. It's clear from the used fleece that they are pulling dirt from the water. No smell, even without separate carbon add-on.
