disconnect co2 at night?
I purchased a co2 system today (JBL ProFlora Bio 80) and was wondering as I dont have an airpump to oxygenate the water should I disconnect the co2 at night?

EDIT: Actually ive just had a thought. If I pull the pipe our surely all the pressurized co2 will escape from the container, meaning it would need another 24/48 hours to build back up?

If your regulator doesn't have a solenoid, you may want to consider getting one with a timer to simplify things.

My kit only has 1 valve, this is the set up:
Container (containing salt mix and water) > piping > none return valve > more piping > diffuser.
Honestly I dont see how I could disconnect at night as the gas would just escape if I pulled the pipe out, and anyway if I did stop dosing at night surely my PH would sky rocket and hurt my fish?
