    Filter socks are a personal preference. I have always used them, but I just run a sump and hate cleaning it. I may run without the sock in a refuge to avoid trapping pods or other critters before they can make it back into the fuge. Put some pix up if you like so we can enjoy your progress

    Welcome to the group. Glad that you joined.

    There are tons of pump choices out there. If this is your first set up I would keep it simple. Eheim, Sicce, and Rio are good choices. (Most don’t like Rio but I like them) an Eheim 1262 or larger Rio would work. Always get more pump than you need. It leaves options to use on a future larger tank if needed.

    As mentioned research the plumbing a bit more. Hob overflows work if set up correctly but there are several way to set up a tank to have safety system to avoid floods

    And #WelcometoR2R. Start a build and meet thread if like

    Is that a hard shell or something soft? If it's hard, scrape it off at the base as deep as you can go and fill the hole with superglue. Vermetid snails send out web like feeding strands that can bother corals. Touch it with something besides your fingers though. It could be a bristle or fire worm which can be painful if touched.

    And Welcome to R2R ! !

    Hello and welcome to R2R!

    I believe we are looking at diatoms and / or dinoflagellates.
