Probably a stupid question but....
I finally brought myself a sponge filter but now it is here I have no idea how it works. It is a blue one that sits in the corner, weighted and has both a small and a large tube.
I know that my air pump is supposed to attach to the smaller one but what is the big one for?

the small tube (from air pump) pushes are into the big tube (into tank), this creates a suction, that will pull debris from the water into the sponge.

Yup.

No need to feel that way. I looked it up before giving my explanation. Just found a picture for the visual people (like me).
