Small bubbles in reef?

I'm setting up a 125g mixed reef. Wondering if I can have anything in there which puts out a constant stream of small bubbles, such as a volcano. I'd like to have this mid to high in my rocks in the center of the tank. I've heard you can't have any bubbles at all in a reef, and I've also heard it's not a problem. Looking for opinions/experience on this. I know this is probably a noob question...but I am new at this especially on this scale and rather ask than be sorry later on. Thanks folks!

Nope, you really don't want anything that generates bubbles in a saltwater tank. you will end up with salt creep everywhere. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
