Just got live rock :)

Hi guys,

Just gt my new tank and today picked up some live rock.
now i have set up my pump but am not sure where the sucion head of the pipe should be...at the moment i have it above water level so its pumping LOADS of bubbles into tank..]

Heres a pic....




Is this OK or do i need to pump the suction head under the water so it just creates a current?

Thanks

remove the tube as you actually want to avoid bubbles in saltwater.... the only place you want them is in your skimmer,.....:)
