FILTER SOCKS FAQ
Q: Is the 100 micron or 200 micron better for my aquarium?
A: The lower the micron rating, the more floating debris it removes hence the filter socks clog up faster. Many hobbyists have both the 100 and 200 micron filter socks which allows them to swap out their 200 micron socks from time to time.
Q: How often should I change the filter socks?
A: It depends on tank load, but generally you want to change your filter socks once a week or every two weeks. The more often you change your filter socks, the better your water quality; it removes organic solids before they have a chance to further break down.
Q: Is it better to use a longer sock with more socks hanging in the filtered water than a shorter one?
