I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I buy the big 200 micron socks from BRS, but looking for some that aren't as fine. Mine need to be changed out about every 3 days.

I bought the extra large 100 micron bag from marinedepot for less than $10. I think my sock measures 7x16 when laying down flat on the floor.

How do you clean these things? I turn them inside out but the dirt just blasts to the other side. A real pain.

Don't put in too much bleach. I made that mistake and it made my socks smell awful.
