 There  will  be   a  black  pad,  a  green  hard  plastic  mesh,  then  a  white  pad,  then  5-6  blue  pads,  finally  another  green  hard  plastic  mesh  in  this  order  top  to  bottom.
 
 In  case  you  discard  the  black  pad  remember  the  green  hard  plastic  mesh  must  always  come  on  top  of  the  white  pad.
 
 Fill  a  bucket  full  of  water  keep  it  on  a  table  and  check  your  filter.

 You'll  have  to  buy  this  stated  configuration  of  media  separately.
 
 What  I  told  you  is  the  media  that  you  will  get  with  a  new  filter.
 
 Yes  this  filter  will  do  for  your  tank.

 The  Standard  contents  of  the  filter  is  as  mentioned  by  Madan,  the  rest  of  the  stuff  like  substrate  pro  etc  you  need  to  buy  separately.
 
 You  can  keep  2-3  of  the  blue  pads  aside  and  fill  that  space  up  with  Ceramic  Rings  for  biological  filteration,  the  diagarm  for  placing  the  different  media  is  on  the  Eheim  Box  itself.
 
 Yes  the  filter  should  be  enough  for  your  tank.
 
 Also  check  if  you  have  got  the  double  taps  along  with  your  filter

 The  Big  one  will  be  for  the  Intake  and  Small  one  for  the  outlet,  the  double  taps  enables  easy  maintainance  of  the  filter.  You  just  need  to  close  the  double  taps  and  open  the  joint.  Then  you  can  easily  remove  the  filter  without  taking  out  the  Inlet  and  Outlet  from  the  aquarium.
 
 Note:  The  double  taps  are  connected  in  between  the  inletpipe  and  the  filter  inlet  and  similar  for  the  outlet,  so  might  have  to  cut  the  pipe  at  a  lenght  you  are  comfortable  with  to  insert  the  double  taps

 i  think  that  the  instructions  that  come  with  the  2217  are  not  good  enough.  I  had  similar  questions  when  I  brought  it.  And  i  got  my  questions  cleared  on  this  forum  itself.
