Does anyone use a sock as a prefilter?

Does anyone use a sock as a prefilter? Small snails are somehow getting inside my sponge prefilter.

Please note that I'm not talking about a sock of your foot but rather this thing that some people with wet/dry salt water tanks use which is a type of filter thing.

Not a bad idea, I'd like to see more input on this.

Besides reducing flow, there might not be an issue.. Maybe I'm wrong.

you might want to consider these,i use them to cover the siphon on the python water changer so no small fish get sucked up.You could attach with a zip tie or rubber band and there even cheaper at Petsmart.
