My setting is a habitable moon with freestanding water orbiting a gas giant. Originally I thought the gravity of the jovian world would tend to draw water toward the tidal bulge of the moon itself. The more I read about even relatively simplistic terrestial tides the more confused I've become. It appears a lot of the concepts taught to me in school are outmoded (hardly a shock there). The tidal lock should mitigate any coriolois effect. I'd expect any other moons in orbit of the gas giant would have some impact in the tides, especially if some of them are joined in a laplace effect. I'm thinking that would create some interesting tidal zones, but isn't my primary focus.
Currently my thinking is that there'd be a large ocean facing the gas giant, with a mountain range or large plateau caused by the Jovian gravity nearest that world. The far side of the moon, tidally locked, would never face the Jovian, but would receive sunlight from the sun, and if the orbital period there was sufficient that could even be every ten to twelve hours. It would be much colder, with an ice cap (tidally locked planets generally not having much difference in inclination to where they were captured).
Assuming a relatively close position (say similar to Io orbiting an even larger gas giant than Jupiter), are there any generalities we could assume from the primary gravitational force from the gas giant acting on the tides and overall formation of the bodies of water? I'm also assuming the world is tectonically active from the tidal forces on its internal structure, has a magnetic field, has about 40-45% surface water, 10-12% ice cover, and has ocean basins of similar depth to Earth.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
