In an aquarium tank do they need to photosyns every day? And is it bad if i dont see bubbles shooting out from the leaves every day?
If you mean that do plants need to produce sugar and starch every day, the answer is dependent on whether the plants have enough reserves of these or not (usually they have enough reserves).

Then please do understand that photosynthesis is not only used by plants to manufacture sugar and starch only. Plants carry out many types of photosynthesis they include synthesis of fatty acids, proteins, etc..

You do not need to see bubbles leaving the plant, photosynthesis will occur as long as the plants receive proper light and have the raw materials at hand.
