    Either Co2 or O2 trapped in leaves depends by how well Co2 is dissolved, if you have an air filter or use air aeration, and of course O2 saturation. For the first two cases, gas could be trapped virtually all the time either Co2 or air is dissolved in water. O2 saturation due to plants photosynthesis usually occurs at the end of the photoperiod, unless you have super high light (I guess...)

    My tanks start pearling a little bit in about an hour, after three or four hours its rolling pretty good. Im talking about bubbles coming off plants and rising to the surface....like upside down rain.

    I call this global pearling and pay close attention to it. If it ever decreases I know something is off somewhere

    You have high light in your tank, so pearling occurs much faster than in lower-light tanks. But it's a good point about seeing plants producing O2. Even in my medium light tank (50-60 PAR at the substrate) I see bubbles coming out from plants after just a few minutes lights are at their peak. I see streams of oxygen as well a single bubbles. If that doens't happen, yes, something is definitively wrong and plants are not photosynthesizing as they should.

    But be careful for low-light tank (less than 40 PAR) and low-tech tank (without Co2): in low-light tank, mostly without Co2 injection, it is difficult to see bubbling and streaming, as well as pearling. Just saying for those folks who have low-ligth, low-tech tanks and "expect" to see pearling, streaming or bubbling and may think something is wrong with their plants when it is absolutely normal in those tanks not to see any pearling, bubbling or streaming.
