How Do I Install This Sponge Filter?

This is a stupid question, but I have this filter below and my question is where does the airline tubing that connects to the air pump go in this device and how do I know if it's working? should I see bubbles in the filter tube?

Thanks

Airline connects to where I circled. The filter goes fully submerged under water, bubbles should come out of larger tube.

The discharge opening must be fully submerged in order to push water out and make the filter operate properly.
