Green Water: Not Telling

Must use or not air pump in daylight green water? I know that at night it's extremly important to use it..
But during the day?

Green Water: Yes
Country: USA



greenwater during the day can produce excess oxygen and saturate the fish leaving bubbles in their fins. Not a good thing.

At night the algae switches from photosynthesis that produces oxygen to respiration at night which consumes oxygen and produces carbon dioxide.

Aerating greenwater all the time is a great way to reduce saturated gases and extreme pH swings. I've seen green water go from 9 pH during the day to 6 pH at night.
