you don't really want a top on a saltwater or reef tank, anyways, it can reduce gas exchange which can lower ph and dissolved oxygen content. i agree go get a powerhead for the DT and QT, you will be happy with the results.

another option would be to build a mesh screen lid. it would help to minimize salt creep but wouldnt totally eliminate it

Get rid of the bubbler. All those bubbles bursting at the surface spray salt all over the place.
