Default air stones (o2) in conjunction with co2


Is it THAT terrible to have an air stone going whilst injecting co2?

Reason why I ask is because my aquarium has a glass lid with a wooden canopy on top.

Which causes trouble getting o2 in there.(poor gas exchange)

I can't remove the lid because the wooden canopy get wet via evaporation.

So I guess the question is if I can still get sufficient Co2 in there is this method ok?

I'm on the second day of this and in 18 months of converting my tank to a planted one its the first time I'm getting pearling.

Wouldn't this emulate why some people believe that their best growth comes from water change day?

Thanks for any input.
