Installing pre filter max III

Hey guys I was wondering if I was doing this right. I installed the pre filter max 3 by using the elbows and adaptors it came with, but taking out the
"middle man" stock intake piece I am holding that came with the AC70. Was I supposed to install the pre filter on top of that piece, or is what I'm doing okay?

depending on the depth of the tank, i kept mine rather high and connected the adapters directly to the U tube on the aquaclear. In my fish tank, i used this extension to connect the pre filter max III up. both connect up using the same adapters except one siphons water from the lower region of the tank.
