I bought this, but i dont know how to get it setup and going. I have the directions on paper but only half of it im understanding.. So i have the hose hooked up to the part on the far right in the pic (below the sponge) and do i put the other side of the hose into my aquarium??

The grey hose goes from your overflow that hangs on the rim down to the filter sock connection.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

There should be two parts to the overflow box. On sits on the inside of the tank with the notches in it, the other box is on the outside. Thjis outside box is the one you connect the tube to.

The water comes in to a certain point where the edges of the teeth are and then the plastic J tube looking thing brings the water from the tank box into the back box and down it goes.

hope that helped

the nozzle goes into the tank and the tube end connects to the output of your return pump inside your sump
