Why wouldn't you run co2 at 1 or 2 bubbles a second 24/7? I run co2 24/7 at 3 bbps in a 46 gallon, done so for at least 2 years, never lost a fish, never have seen them gasp either. I have surface rippling enough to break up surface scum. My drop checker is yellow green. I've gone on 10 day vacations without losing any fish. I would try the 24/7 routine a few days before you go, so you feel comfortable with it though.
