What sniper meant is why add a small filter inside a more effective filter where all you need is just to add media bags on it and filter sock. No need to add extra work to maintain another small filter.

Probably not. Several schools of thought. Most folks use a fine filter, (sock or floss) to remove large floaters. Then use PS and biological processes to remove the dissolved organics. I like the floaters and don't use fine filtration. My theory is there are organisms in the water column that are beneficial to filter feeders like coral.

I agree I don't use the fine filters either just because of the copapods it would catch
