pgAdmin III installed after postgres - how do I view/connect to existing databases?

I'm so new to this I'm not even sure I know how to ask the question, but hopefully it makes sense:

I installed postgres on OS X Yosemite (following these instructions: https://gorails.com/setup/osx/10.10-yosemite) and have made some databases.

Having used Microsoft SQL Server in the past, I wanted a GUI with which to view the databases so I downloaded and installed pgAdmin III (using the first link on http://www.postgresql.org/download/macosx/). Unfortunately, it seems like pgAdmin III has just installed a new instance of postgres, as it doesn't show any of the databases I made (within Terminal) in the original postgres installation.

Does anyone know how to amend my settings in pgAdmin III so that it just acts as a 'screen' for the existing postgres installation?
