What do you all use for filter pads? My sump can use filter socks or pads. I just switched to socks today and it's so much noisy than pads...guess I have to switch back to buying pads all the time

Socks, but my eshopps sump isn't designed for anything else.

I buy filling for quilts and stuffing for filter floss in my freshwater.

I hate socks but I use a media basket for slot 1 and a sock for slot 2c chamber 2 is my skimmer and chamber 3 is my refugium with rubber rock, heater and pompom macro and chamber 4 has a sponger filter between it and the return pump

I don't have room for all that :rolling-on-the-floor-laughing: I have a eshopps rs100 and that takes up most of the room beneath my 4ft tank.:rolling-on-the-floor-laughing: Barely room for the ATO, UV, and media reactor (carbon but there if I need anything else)

Get rid of the uv and the media reactor then

Yea ATO is always a must, never ran UV, it kills pods and phytoplankton and other foods my coral needs for a healthy balance
I had pods EVERYWHERE. I seeded the tank with some from Jay's Reef Bugs, just after the cycle finished. Since I added the Timor wrasse though, I really have to search for them.
