I believe so, you just need to watch out for the false cleaner. The false cleaner looks exactly the same but its lips are downward facing, like a algae eaters. They will rip scales off. You prob wont see one in a store but fogured id give you a heads up. And yes you would prob want lids, not such a bad idea though

I run glass lids for 2 reasons.
1. I have spent way too much money on my fish to not have something protecting them
2. Any aerosol sprays that the tank might be exposed to.

If youre not open to glass tops, you could look into wire reptile style lids, they still hold the fiah in and have an open air style.

With the glass tops do they mess with oxygen levels of the water at all? Or are there any other Ill effects from them?

Personally speaking ive not experienced one issue with them. Some people experience ph issues and/or water temp issues but its subjective to each tank and circumstances. I also have a 4 year old son so you can imagine the worries the glass tops save me. True story I was moving my light gixture back yesterday and a leg broke... If mot for the tops, I woulda had some seriously dead fish
