Bubbler or no bubbler

I am just wondering if it is advisable to remove my Bubbler from my tank. I really want to plant this tank and was wondering If the Bubbler would cause a loss of co2 due to surface agitation. Just looking for ideas and or opinions. Thanks

By the way I have two HOB filters on the 56 gallon tank. Both are whisper ex's. One is a 70 the other is a 30.

Use it at night when the lights are off for respiration

I don't use them period. I think they're ugly and take away from the natural look of the tank. JMO

I pulled them out of the tanks. It seems everything I read about them with plants is somewhat negative. After I turned them off and observed the surface circulation is seems like it was improved. Thanks for the feedback. I can always count on this site for solid advice.
