Tip of the Day – 7/31/2014


Filter socks are great tools for trapping detritus and other fine particles that cause the water to take on a grainy, stained look. They are often made of nylon and polyester, also coming in a huge variety of pore sizes to match any aquarists needs. But due to quickly clogging, as in a couple of days before it’s clogged, several of them need to be purchased so that they can be rotated through your system while the others are being cleaned. As far as cleaning goes, a quick trip through the washing machine is adequate, and many hobbyists use bleach to get the socks pearly white again.
