Hey Linday -
If memory serve me correctly, slide the entire tub and table to the left to the opposite side. That allows the water to settle and all the particulate matter to remain in the tub. In the second picture, the clear column with the bioballs inside is positioned underneath the left side of the blue tub in the first picture. However, I remember a lid to the column that will allow it to connect to the orange handled ball valve pictured below the blue tub. Then using the shepard's crook shaped pipe pictured in the background attach the lower end to the base of the bioball column. You have the top end positioned correctly. Lots of water checks, pH testing, and cycle testing. Before you start a fish crop you need a few months to populate the bioballs with beneficial bacteria. Add a few (no more than 4 or 5) fish so that the system can start to cycle and the bacteria can start to populate. I would suggest a few sunfish from a pond or a few 1 lb bass if you are lucky as your maintenance fish. Let me know if I missed the mark on what the pictures represent.
