Don't be too happy about seeing bubbles. The reason you are still seeing bubbles is, your plants are using calcium carbonate, magnesium etc. to get their needed carbon. This method of acquiring co2 is an energy intensive means for the plants and will eventually lead to poor growth; co2 injection is not. So turn on the co2 again.
