Breathing heavy can mean toxins in the water, is your tank cycled? How did you acclimate the fish? Unless you have known fish that are jumpers try an open lid, that will help but will also mean more evaporation.

No, I mean the airstone bubbles create salt creep, at the top of the tank, all over the lights etc...
