Water changes and corals exposed to air

I thought I would post a few pics of what my tank looks like when I do a water change. I do 20g every 2 weeks. The corals are exposed to the air for 15-20 mins each time. It doesn't affect them at all as it's a common occurance for many corals during low tide.

Does anything slime up? I had a Green Bali Slimer that used to get exposed to air and would make my tank so nasty afterwards.
