What are you calling your bio filter?
I run all my filters 24/7.

Hi Naveen
What is a bio filter?
All filters should be running 24/7 365 days a year

Just leave your filter on all the time. Ammonia is always being produced

I leave my filter and air-pump on 24/7. The only thing that isn't on all the time are the lights.

I've, on occasion, turned down my air-pump at night if I think the fish prefer it, but it doesn't seem to bother them at all and they love playing in it during the day.
