What's this??

Can someone tell me what this tube thing is called? I've seen them at the pet store with screens on top and I would like to pick up a couple before I add any fish. Thanks!

Looks to be just a pvc elbow for a basic overflow into the back wall and a plastic inner mesh from a cartridge filter, if that is what you are asking?

the mesh insert is what i am looking for, specifically one that has a top screen. The guy at the pet store called it a "baby catcher" or "baby protector", something like that.
