Thanks Mina, I think I'll probably stick to the marineland pads just because I can't be bothered to go to a craft store Also I'm hoping that the pad is a little tougher floss than the aqueon cartridges so I can reuse it for a longer time. Shouldn't be too cost intensive.

I have not used this myself, but there is much information on dee interwebz you could look up. I'm planning to do this after the floss I'm using presently craps out. Be sure to report back on how your choice works out for ya! Good luck!

Like so, sense of humor required:
Very simple and useless Marineland Penguin filter mods.

I use this on my tanks! Works wonderfully and it costs maybe 7$ for a giant bag that will last you a lifetime(not joking).

I use it on my canister filter and hobs
