I got a really good shot I thought of my diamond goby tonight just wanted to share. His burrow is so deep but the rocks are good as of now keeping figures crossed.

After digging his cave the goby caused some of the rocks to shift so I had to rearrange some things ill post a pic or so maybe later. Started to get a lot of hair algae on the back wall and continuous algae on the front glass that I clean every other day or so. I think it may be because my filter socks fill up so much it's a day or so before I change them after they overflow.

Speaking about filter socks, I have 4 socks that I have been changing out. They get clogged about every 2 or 3 days and then the water starts to overflow (but still in the sump just spills out of the sock) the skimmer pulls crap out anyway (located in the DT still) I soaked 2 of the socks in a little bit of bleach and hot water and rinsed them out let them air dry. But, the outside of the sock was okay but inside was still kinda nasty. The float in the hot water and bleach so couldnt really scrub the inside to well. What are some best practices for filter socks/ cleaning/ maintanence/ how often do you need to change them? Any links for cheap 4'' bulk socks
