I just filled and started running my new 150 and I have gobs of foam coming out of my filter socks. Any suggestions? No fish and have not started to cycle tank, just getting salinity right and up to temp.

I'll say i did this almost exact same, and that's what it was for me was the socks. i used icecap filter socks and you could almost feel they were, like starched or something.

giving them a really good rinse with r.o water or fresh removed water from a w.c works perfect

Happens a lot. My sump used to foam up in the beginning so it might also be some weird bacteria process. I wouldn't worry much unless it is overflowing off to the sides.
