Is it DIY or Pressurized? Pressurized usually goes on an hour before lights come on and goes off an hour before lights turn off. If it's DIY they run 24/7 as you can't turn them off.

No you need to turn the airstone off during the day as it's causing your CO2 to gass off. Turn it on at night to do that.
