As long as the air bubble is isolated from the atmosphere, it will equilibrate with the CO2 level in the tank, and eventually both sides of the bubble (tank and indicator dye) will have the same CO2 level.

The instructions made no mention of creating an air bubble, however it
appears one can be created by the device. I'll let it go overnight and
see what happens. Normally the dye leaks out in an hour or so.
