Mining Chia + Ethereum simultaneously - any reason not to?

I started mining Chia yesterday and realized I can mine ether too. I have one 3080 that isn't doing anything. I'm only getting 77MH/s while running it with the Chia plotting, which is lower than it should be, but it's still profitable. How much does this slow down my Chia plotting, if at all? Is there any reason for me not to do both simultaneously? If the computer is on, may as well utilize it fully right?

No slow down at all. ETH is a GPU and Chia is CPU, Mem and SSD speed. My plotting rig is running a 1080ti mining ETH as well.

If you stop mining chia does your eth hash rate jump?

I am just using Nicehash, lately it has been running t-rex quite a bit. Profits are really high right now with ETH being up so much.
I'm getting 93-95 on my 3080 running gminer pointing at nicehash
