if you diffuse your Co2 good enough via in inline reactor the loss of CO2 will be unnoticeable, finely diffused Co2 bubbles have little to no boyancy, Co2 in my tank bounces of the water surface and is shot all throughout the tank with little to no Co2 loss

sometimes however heavily planted tanks can still get this if you have a heavy fish load or you over fertilize
