That would be how it is done. An extra air pump would also help; I prefer just rigid tubing over an airstone to eliminate salt spray.

When the waters splashes up on stuff the water evaporates and leaves the salt behind and makes a big mess. least thats what i always thought it was

Just as Pat mentioned, airstones release microbubbles that float to the surface and burst causing liquid to saturate covers where precipitation occurs leaving just the salt (precipitate).

Seems like a good plan to me. Just make sure you keep an eye on your levels. they make additives that help to keep ammonia nitrite and nitrate down that may help you if your having problems.

The basis is to prevent NH3 from forming so other than pH, temp, and salinity you should be good. Keep us posted.
