Aluminum frame is anodized frame which is safe for saltwater but there is will be very minimal contact with saltwater. But he used same material for my tank tank and did not have any issues with corrosion or anything.. this frame is 1/8" thick 2 inch x 2 inch angles.

I am not worried about it, I will have oversized algae scrubber and refugium that is going to outrun algae on glass but I do have shades on those windows that I can roll down. but little sunlight will make fish and coral colors pop IMO..
