A air stone (bubbler) is pointless IMO specially in a saltwater tank.

Yea... I know I have one in my cichlid tank ONLY because the wife won that battle but I'll win the war!

I mean my all means do what you want. It's your tank. My wife wanted bubbles in my cichlid tank and after a long battle she won. I now have a bubble wall in my tank. Not for long though

Besides looking nice the bubbles will aggregate the surface in a way that salt will creep virtually everywhere. I'd personally not do it!
