DIY CO2 questions..

I setup a batch of DIY Yeast CO2 last night diffusing through a ceramic disk. All is well today - production is outstanding, however just a question: My Rena XP2 spray bar is pointed somewhat towards the surface and rippling it (not really breaking it). Is this outgassing the CO2 floating to the surface from my ceramic disk diffuser? Should I instead point the spray bar downwards?

I don't have fish yet (almost through cycling) - not sure if that matters with the spray bar direction? (my thought is to inject mass amounts of CO2 now to let the plants take hold). And should I change the direction once I get fish?

I would point it downwards and keep a glass lid on the tank. Consider putting a timer for it to turn on during the night only.

I have a glass top and I have the lights on an auto-digital timer running 1pm - 9pm each day.
