Are the tank walls/baffles felxible? If not, there's no need to couple to Mechanical, just us moving mesh to move the whole mesh back and fourth in CFX.
The error message above is simple enough. You can't use those elements with FSI.

Workbench creates those elements in various different cases - springs, if you have a rigid body, remote displacements,...
So you need to figure out what feature in your case is using those elements, then find a different way to implement that feature.
