My green water culture seems to be "pearling." Are the gas bubbles, oxygen? Does single-celled organisms in the green water produce oxygen?

In short, during the day the algae will produce oxygen,
however, at night, the reverse happens and they produce
Carbon Dioxide.

Funny that, single celled plants behave similar to multi celled plants.
