hi. this my sound like a dumb ?. like i've stated before im in
the process of converting my 125 gal wall mounted Freshwater to fowlr.
i have already removed all the gravel, decor and Freshwater fish. i had a
ario volcano with color mix light and air curtain with blue led light
which my kids loved. i was wondering if they can be added to the
saltwater tank with out creating any problems. ???:; i know this sort of stuff is mainly used in Freshwater set ups but my kids like it alot.

You can if you wash them. the only problem with airstone is salt splattering all over your equipment. if you like extra cleanin i would go for it.

Well if you want to use them you should keep an eye for 3 things.
1.) Too much salt creep, salinity level might drop.
2.) Micro-bubbles might develop.
3.) A skimmer affect might develop aswell.

Things to look for;
on
1.) Keep testing your salt level like once aweek to see if does make a difference or not.
2.) If you start seeing very small bubbles accumulating for a long period of time, then you might be getting micro-bubbles aswell. You could use an airstone that produces bigger bubbles. If you still get that affect then you will still get micro-bubbles.
3.) Look at the surface of the tank and if foam starts to form or the surface water looks like it's gummy or kind of oily. If this happens then you are getting a skimmer affect on the surface of the tank. You could either add a surface skimmer or use an airstone that produces bigger bubbles.
