Pop a photo of what you got on and I will give you photos of what you need. Gonna need a pic of your preferred tap too. Out of interest what store did you visit? I get tons of customers appearing when I'm in for fish tank questions, all the other staff know it's my forte lol they tell them to come back at 3.
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

Worst case, you'll have to go online and buy an adapter from python or someone that carries them. If your pressure is low (a problem I've dealt with) , make sure all air is purged from the hose. Start at the tank and lift the hose so air is forced towards the faucet until it's out. Also large debris can sometimes clog the faucet connection, so keep an eye on that. I agree with Bertie that changing water is better than just removing debris, but as a supplement to water changes, it can't hurt.

If you get it going let me know, I have a 35 gallon, and rheumatoid arthritis. Buckets is out, but a python looks like good sense. Unfortunately I have difficulty turning valves and taps, so need levers, or some sort of adaptation.
