Those bubbles can seriously stress a fish. If you REALLY want them they MAY be ok.

I';d remove the bubble wall, just more trouble than it's worth. if you have proper circulation via filter, sump return and powerheads no need for the bubble wall.

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

Coral beauty MIGHT need a larger tank when fully grown. He looks good now though, keep up the good work. Good luck.

I agree with the bubble wand,your going to have salt creep everywhere ...
They are really not suited for saltwater tanks
As long as you have an open top,,your HOB will be enough movement for gas exchange, till you get a couple PH's
