I've been trying to figure my way out of a similar situation: I don't
mind the carbon, but I do need to get rid of it if I have to medicate
the fishies. If I could just find the right place underneath to cut
the hole(s) to let the carbon out and leave the attached batting
alone, I think I'd have it...
