During the day when my CO2 is on is it ok to have the power head with air bubbles on at the same time?

The reason I'm asking is, I use a canister filter and when I feed my fish the flakes don't sink and tend to stay afloat.

When the power head is on it helps with most of the food sinking.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Its fine to have the powerhead blowing bubbles when the co2 is on. Doing so may require you to inject more co2 to maintain the desired concentration due to the air bubbles off-gassing more co2. But this is just part if dialing in how much co2 to inject in any set up.
