should i put the air hoses on the powerheads so they take in air???
No, those bubbles are not good and will lead to problems with the fish's eyes (i believe).

Try to get more gas exchange where there is no covering.

What kind of lighting do you have. If you want an upgrade for an FOWLR, I would skip the skimmer, for now and get a lighting set up that sits above the tank. This will give you my gas exchange, and more stable pH....Maybe something like this:

But, that's just my thoughts.....

Beautiful tank! IMO, I would wait for the cycle to complete, sounds like it's gettin close.

Good luck.
