Filter Socks (Large 8x18)

Hi,
I currently use the large Premium 8"x18" filter socks from CustomAquariums. They are fairly expensive ($20 each if you buy 5) although I don't mind the price as much as the ridiculous shipping costs. To ship 15 of them (total weight of less than 2 pounds)...they charge $60 for S&H.

I have been trying to find another supplier (scoured the internet for hours) that has this size (4" Ring, 8" x 18") but I cannot find them anywhere except Custom Aquariums. Maybe they are the only ones...but hoping not.

Has anybody used these and/or found a different supplier?

Thank you.
Steve

Bulk reef supply has a lot but I didn't see the larger size at first glance, plenty of the smaller though, as well as 7x16. I didn't look through all results though. I'd suggest checking the 'reef' sites if you weren't looking at those specifically. Good luck.

Hi ... I’m new to hobby but I think this is what you’re looking for.
The owner, Cory, is very knowledgeable and posts a lot of vids on YouTube ( where I’ve learned a lot)
I snapped a pic
You can input “filter bag” in search bar

Thank you for your response. But that is a media bag and not the sock filter.

Well, that’s embarrassing.
Let me try to redeem myself.
Here’s another place I buy from ...
