In the over flow pipe with a proper clip to attach it in the proper position. Fill tube should be positioned above the fill line. You can get a complete fluild master kit and replace all that for less than 20 dollars if needed. Or you can buy one of those clips for about 50 cents for a quick fix and your back in business.

Or just find a Paperclip jmon, create your own clip for nothing, and fix it with a little American ingenuity.

Looking at your picture looks like there's a cleaning tablet in the tank. Remove the tablet and stop putting cleaning products like that in your tank it will destroy the innards. Unless you want toilet repair to be your new hobby

+1. The chemicals in most of them are pretty rough on the flapper and seals. The rot out a lot sooner than necessary. That and they're not all that great for sewage systems in general.

The only ones that I have found to be any good, are the Clorox tablets, that do not eat the Rubber or plastic parts.

If it's got bleach in it then it WILL eat the parts. Maybe not as soon as others but the chemicals in it will definitely degrade the stuff. The plasticizers in the components just won't hold up when exposed to those kinds of solvents.

If anything, the kind that clip into the bowl area are "less worse" in that they won't be causing all the rubber bits in the tank to sit there soaking in it. They're still really not good for the sewage systems though.
