The Marineland filter is not an easy one to use custom filter in. You will probably need to modify a cartridge to be able to do it. I personnaly would not bother tinkering with it. Aquaclears are much easier to load with custom media. Anyways, if you want to try this, you would need filter floss, wich is a polyester floss made for use in the aquarium. I would buy it at a pet shop, because you would be sure that it is safe in the aquarium. I also heard you could buy it a walmart, just be sure to rinse it very well. Use as much as you can fit in the old cartridge without packing it down too much.
You will need to access this floss regularly because it gunks up quickly. If you sew it close, it will be very hard to get access to it and close it back up afterwards...
