Make sure you have airline tubing (rigid) to keep the water well oxygenated.

Air tube? Your SW aquarium recieves its oxygen supply from a gas exchange at the surface from water movement and fresh air supply. The bubbler may add some but not near enough. The bubbles it produces is more of an eyesore.

He was referring to having an air line a covered QT tank, not a bubbler in a display tank. I agree with you about it being an eyesore in a display tank. I've seen that in the ocean unless it was from a scuba diver, and even then it was very temporary <g>

Covering the tank means you cant get a good gas exchange and gas release at the surface. I can see useing the bubbler while covered but this would trap the release of nitrogen leading to higher ammonia amoung others?

My response was based on the fact that many medications starve oxygen and many stressed fish show labored breathing so I'd rather be safe than sorry. I also prefer rigid airline with an open top (egg crate is fine) since I avoid a fine mist of bubbles from an airstone that increases salt creep.

Safer then sorry would mean added water flow. The bubbles that any air pump gives isnt useable for fish. The amount that collects at the surface would help since its covered but the ill effects of being covered might be worse.
