filter pads and polishing....

I run a lifereef sump, which takes 3×6" pad...
I run 2 pads, bottom white fluffy pad, top dual density blue/white..
I still have a lot of ditrious floating , what micron filter pad for polishing ?

When I ran socks was running 200 micron felt..

But polishing pads I c are 50 micron..

Where to buy just the material?

I've used 1-micron socks from Amazon. simply amazing results with a caveat.

They are clogged within 24-48 hours and they have to be washed and dried nearly immediately because apparently if left sitting wet the ring in the top of the sock will rust.

I used them when dosing lanthanum chloride.
