Looks to be a weir

It basically covers pipework leading to the sump in the cabinet below and allows water to drain steadily down without risking pulling fish in, too. You can't usually buy them seperately, but you can build your own if you're planning to drill the tank.

You don't need one, unless you have a sump, in which case they're very helpful!
