It hooks right inside your tank and connects to an airline. There are holes drilled at one end and the other end has a sponge filter built right in. It provides great water flow. It measures about 8 inches long and about 4 inches front to back.
Right now I have some Pheno fry in there and they are thriving! My main reason for purchasing this, was in case I ever needed a tank in a pinch to place some newly born fry.

On the plywood under your tanks notes... I only use non-porous styrofoam products, even when I build a stand like yours which can handle two tank depths (13 and 18 or 18 and 24 etc). This material is forgiving and will form to your tank and stand combos eliminating imperfections (in the wood or workmanship) that could crack a tank. Given enough water every piece of wood will warp or swell and it doesn't care how much weight you have on it.
Curently I'm using a insulating foam with one foil side toward the tanks, the teory is it will (hopefully) reflect some heat loss back at the tank as well as the form fitting properties mentioned above.
