i wonder if we drain tank water in a bucket every day, and then fill it back up with the same water if it would have the same effect????

But you expose the plants to air, and like sponges.....they will take up a lot more air and CO2 than we think, many tidal places have excellent plant growth both marine and freshwater tidal locations.

Those places get 2x a day water changes and exposures.

And we have excellent plant growth in those same places.
