You can't "turn off" DIY C02. Depending upon your diffusion methed--you may be able to "turn off" the dissolution of the C02. In other words, if your diffusion method is powerhead/pump based--then you can turn the powerhead/pump off, but not the DIY C02. If it an airstone, ladder, into filter, etc--then you're just out of luck. Let it run 24/7.

Don't block/stop the output from DIY C02.

IF you really cared you could put some sort of valve inline with the hose and every night you would have to manually switch it so it vented to atmosphere.. but like everyone already said no real point.
