It helps remove oils from the top of the water improving gas exchange, also the filter came with it.

Hi Mr. Dempsey,

You have an awesome tank. That piece of alge covers driftwood gives an natural depth to the tank. All your fish look great; however, do you plan to keep them all in there longterm?

Thanks,
Matt
