Can't figure out how to install filter in Aqueon Evolve 8?? (pics)
 
Hello everyone! I just got a new tank, but as I was trying to set it up, I realized that I have no idea what the filter parts do and how to install them!!!
There aren't any instructions either on how to set up the filter--

There is a filter compartment in the back of the aquarium and it looks like this:

So there are two parts to it--

and the aquarium came with these filter items:

And what's really confusing me is the pump-- there are two different tubings, a little sponge attachment and the pump

This is what I've figured out so far:

Does anyone have experience with this aquarium set up or know how to install the filter?

im thinking that the water pump will attach to the output somehow im not sure about the sponge tho but you will need something pushing the filtered water thru the output.

hmmmmm.. yeah-- I've looked up some submersible pump tutorials but when it explains how to install them, it just says "refer to your owners manual for installation"
hmmmm!!
