    My Venturi diffuser is so darn efficient at dissolving CO2 that even with sufficient surface agitation my CO2 levels start causing stress for my fish around 1-2 hours prior to lights out. Would it cause any algae problems if I ran an airstone starting an one hour prior to lights out to elmininate this problem?

    Just turn it off 2hours before the lights go out, or add a hole a burp hole farther up so that it waste more CO2.

    You can easily turn it off or down either way.
