Importance of equal distribution of CO2?

The title pretty much says it all. I've started injecting co2 into my tank, but I've noticed there is a much higher density of co2 bubbles on one side, even though I have a circulation pump sending some to the other side.

Is this a problem for plants? Do people typically run CO2 on both sides of the tank?

Generally it shouldn't be a problem unless your tank is 6+ feet long.

How are you diffusing the gas? Information on your particular setup can help get you some good suggestions if you want better disbursement.
