What constitutes too much co2 flux?

Been reading quite a bit lately (mainly in the Barr Reports) that co2 fluctuations can/will cause algae.

So, my question:

Since plants max out at uptake of 30ppm co2, is it still considered a bad flux to have co2 flow between, as example, 30 and 50 over a short period of time? Or is the "bad flux" mainly saying dont let co2 flux much under or stratling 30ppm?

I have wondered the same thing myself. Mine has been fluctuating between about 30 and 50. Anybody know?
