The air tube is intended to provide a venturi, to be used when the Maxi Jet is powering a Protein Skimmer. For directly placement in the water, you would be best not to use the air tubes.

Agreed, if you're worried about O2 in the tank, your skimmer should be doing the job for you. If you don't have one, then surface agitation will do the same job. I just hope you are planning on keeping any anthias

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
