Air Pump

Hey I have 72 bow, 265watt CF, c02 injection/bubble ladder, just ordered dry ferts/regular flourish for trace, a dose of excel every day so far with injection but might cut it down to 1-2 times a week maybe just one dose of excel at beginning of week or something... anyways... I got magnum 350 and want to fill tank up to the top so very little surface movement... I bought air pump the other day like an air pod for 55 gallon thought it would be fine... should I run it during day or just at night? and... where should I put air stone? torwards ground under output? maybe try to get air bubbles pushed by output torwards top of tank? or something? does it matter?

I'd run it at night only when the tank lights are off and turn it off before you turn them on or dose ferts.

I'd put it near the bottom.
