Question Newbie in need of advice pleas - Boy-u 60L

Hello there
Iíve found my way here - almost by a happy accidentÖ I recently bought a Boy-u 60L tank and was dismayed to discover it has no instructions?! Iím new to keeping an aquarium and so Iím confused how to set up the filter which is inbuilt in the lid?
It has a long black tube with holes along it so am I right in thinking this lays horizontally inside the hood on top of the white sponge?
I think I need to attach the other long black tube down into the tank so itís like a big inverted L shape overall - is this correct?
Any advice would be so very welcome! Thank you
Debra

Thats a brand ive not come across and i cant find any manuals online for your aquarium. Can you ask the store you bought it from to get hold of a manual or a manufacturers contact number to call to get one emailed to you?

However the setup you describe sounds similar to the one in this video which might give you some idea on how it all goes together.

Filter not drawing up water??

I have set up the aquarium and the filter unit is warm and buzzing but not drawing up water from the tank?
I have attached photos - might the filter be faulty do you think?
Any advice greatly appreciated thank you

Try filling the tank up. The pump may need to be submerged before it can start to draw water.
