Using it for a pet fountain filter
After seeing some tutorials online for homemade pet fountain filters, I was really excited to find this for such a great price--and it's lived up to every expectation! It was easy to cut to size with a knife or rotary cutter, and we got over a year's worth of filters out of this stuff. It's been in the cat's fountain for about two months now, and working GREAT! It keeps all the cat hair, cat spit, and food particles out of his water, and he's been drinking a lot more since we put these filters in. Win!

Multiple uses and a great value for the money!
Perfect for multiple uses! These pads are generously sized and easy to cut and use. I used them to make fish tank filters, turtle tank filters, and even pet water fountain filters, as some other reviewers suggested. I see little flecks of the carbon sometimes settling at the bottom of my pet fountains, but I didn't see any discoloration in the water. My pets seem to be drinking more water after adding these for filters.
For my fish tanks they keep the water crystal clear and I don't have any of the 'fishy' odor that tanks can sometimes have. I used them inside Aqueon Quietflow filters and they do an amazing job! Just combine them with a sheet of filter floss and you're good to go. Much cheaper than buying the cartridges. I keep these in my tank until they're pretty much falling apart. I just rinse them off in some old tank water when doing water changes and pop them back in. Same goes for the turtle tank.
When I first got them I tried rinsing them out, but the carbon seems to be really well infused with the fibers and I didn't see very much of it come off. It's definitely worth it for the sheer amount of money you'll save on filters if you use them in a pet fountain or tank. With just one pad I was able to supply myself with two large filters for the turtle tank, two filters for each of my fish tanks, and multiple small filters for my pet fountains.

Money Saver 2
By M. Claiborne
I use this in combination with the Deep Blue Professional Plain Polyfiber Media pad to keep my aquarium filtered. I use the two as an extra layer of protection. I just rinse them off and reuse them. I must say that using these is a lot cheaper than buying replacement filters by Aqueon for my Aqueon filtration system every month or so. Just cut them to size and you are good to go. I always put the Plain Polyfiber Media in the front (personal preference) and the Carbon Media in the back. I am very satisfied with the results and savings.
