?

i dont even know. i can hear some noise when i come near the tank and when i touch my aquarium glass i can feel the vibration. only one of the machine has a wire and that is the one which sucks the water into the big box thingy .so do you advice cleaning the aquarium ? . if you see my picture there is a tube like thing which pumps back the water to the aquarium, this tube is the thing which is not working i think . my filter should be working as there is noise and there is slight vibration in the glass

the box thingy does not have a wire it just shares the power from the the other device in the aquarium . and that wire is the only wire.the filter was new not used it use to work a week ago before i realised that the tube was not working .it did come with a manual but it was all in japanese !

The power head(black box inside tank) is what you should look at first. Here is a video that should help

Most powerheads are similar. It should twist open. You want to clean the impeller as that is what spins and pumps the water. When reassembled make sure you get most the air out of the powerhead.

I just had to do this yesterday on my 48(or 46 i think its 48I don't even remember my tank size and I just got it lol)
Took it apart and somehow the impeller had my hair in it and jammed it. Take your filter apart. It's annoying to do but could be a very easy fix.

You don't have to worry about air in a submersible pump as it will find it's own way out.
