If it's an airstone it shouldn't hurt anything unless you're trying to grow plants. I only run airstones at night because that's when plants use oxygen instead of carbon dioxide.
Of course, your airstone emits air into the tank which contains CO2 as well as O2 (and all the other gasses too). Therefore, the CO2 will benefit the plants in the day, the O2 for the night and for the fish day and night. I really do not see that you can over oxygenate.

unless you are keeping fish that are sensitive to the extra current the airstone will cause I don't see it as being a problem. I don't use one in my main tank but all of my smaller breeding tanks have one in them and I don't have any problems. And even in my main tank this is one planted just under the substrate in case I'm ever in need of emergency aeration.
