I have ditched socks and just use quilt batting instead. Much easier as it's remove and toss. Does just as good a job as socks in my opinion. You may need to modify the filter sock hanging area to accommodate the batting though...

There are spots between the filter sock holes where I can stuff some material in. Might try this.

Which anthias are you planning? Make sure you are extra strict on quarantine with anthias. They are uronema magnets.

Check out resplendent’s too they are one of my favorites of the ones that aren’t super hard to keep. They may shoal better than the lyretails if that is what you are looking for.
