I dont know much about them, but to me they serm like a separate part of the filter that is a safe place for growing out delicate corals, or macro algea. Not essential on smaller tanks. But this is just my understanding. What lights do you have by the way?

^^That depends, it's hard to find a light fixture for a ten gallon (so carey has told me via PM ), but I would say a T5HO, LED, or metal hallide. But I know those sometimes get crazy expensive.
