Blacking tank out, should I turn off CO2?

Hello all, blacking the tank out for a few days around the holidays because I won't be home to enjoy it and I do have some filamentous hair algae I would like to stop. Do I turn my CO2 off?

I am guessing I do because photosynthesis will be slowing way down without lights. Only reason I am asking is because I don't want my PH to change over the few days.

Absolutely. Your co2 should never run when the lights are out. Ever. Like not even at night.
I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
