The new transparent filter had 3 components. A sponge, a bag of carbon and a bag of pellets. First he rinsed the sponge. Next he flattened the carbon to fit snugly against the sides of the basket, on top of the sponge. Last but not least were the pellets. Apparently this is where the beneficial bacteria would propagate, given their rough, gritty surface. So Jebediah dumped the tablets into the mesh bag, closed it with a locking mechanism, and trimmed the excess material. He placed it on top of the carbon. That night he sat contentedly and watched the fish.
