What is this

As I took the picture I think I figured it out but maybe I'm wrong. It came with my tank when I bought it.

It's a check valve for air pumps.

It will stop water if it starts to syphon out your tank

+1 to ronin.

It really doesnt do much other than what was mentioned...like if power goes out one day the valve will stop it from leaking all over your floor. its worth using since you have it, but not a necessity IMO

worth noting is that it's made to flow in one direction only, so using your pic as reference the end at the top of the pic would be the inlet and the bottom end the outlet
