No, I would not consider that a high load.  Of course, it is still possible
to be over feeding them.  What is your nitrate level?  (if you said
already, I'm sorry, I don't remember)

If everything is going well, you shouldn't need to provide surface
movement.  But until you are sure your O2 levels are staying up at night,
it's good insurance.  I wouldn't keep it going during the day.
