Fluval FX-5 Help

I just bought i used FX-5 and although its only 2 months old, it did not come with an instruction booklet so i have no idea if this is correct or not.

The pictures below are of the rubber connector that i presume connects the hose to the inlet/outlet ? Considering how much water this filter pushes, it does not seem very safe ! I have tried it out in a bucket first to see if any leaks started but couldnt find any. It just scares me that im relying on 125 gallons of water to be kept in the tank and not all over my floor, by this flimsy connector which doesnt take a lot of effort to pull clean off.
