Eheim 2217 canister filter

I was just cleaning by eheim 2217 canister filter and there is a bag full of what appear to be rocks. The rocks in the bag make no sense to me. Am I supposed to open the bag and pour the rocks in? Let me know. Thanks in advance to all who reply.

If they are in a mesh bag I think that's the Bio Media. I would leave them in the bag but that's just me..

No mesh bag, its plastic. There might be holes on the bottom of the bag, but I didn't want to mess with it.

I have it set up the way it came. I didn't read anywhere in the instructions that I had to set it up a certain way it just said to rinse before using.

The only thing that comes in a plastic bag is the efi substrate little round brown balls.You rinse it and pour it in on top of the blue sponge.
