if one aspect of your vegetable growing is lettuce etc then you can set up a couple of beds as DWC's. These are constant flood and are easy to run. You will probably get better growth for some plants as well with just baskets.

... one five gallon bucket was not cutting it. Trying to decide if I should have two different SLO drains going to two different five gallon buckets, then to a individuial grow bed each, or just two SLO outlets to one header, and adding a 55 gallon drum. I will have to go buy the drum, but dont mind. ...

... ro add phase 2.0. I used the outlet of the IBC tank as a means to flow water into my swirl filter. It is all gravity fed to the sump where it is then jits the pump and part (currently) goes to a grow bed and the overflow is returned to the fish tank to start the circuit again. I have set the ...

This system uses a solids lift overflow (SLO) from a 275gal IBC and flows to a RFF (30 gallon?), then to the growbeds which drain to the sump. You can see all in the photo if you look closely. I don't recommend something as small as a 5 gallon bucket for an RFF unless it's ...

... them to the right out in the sun. We don't have a sump tank. I'm not entirely sure I understood the setup but if you are running Constant Flood then you should be able to add more grow beds. You'll need to add the piping and enough water for the additional beds and piping. Can you grow plants ...

... I'll take a crack anyway. 1. All the water flows toward the lowest point in the system so that's where your pump should be. If it's the sump then that's where the pump belongs. If you don't have a sump then it goes in the fish tank. 2. The GPH should be roughly the gallons in your fish tank ...

Looks interesting :headbang: . I'm not sure about the Foam Fractionator use if this is fresh water. I know it's possible but it's not as easy as in salt water. If you can't get this working then a Static Upflow Filter or a Drum Filter would help with the fines. Keep up the good work :thumbright:

... media - it looks like you are only using half the tub. most likely the issue is the soil in the containers. If it is soil (versus perlite etc) then the situation will be too wet for the plants and they will rot. This would easily explain the poor growth. If you want to use finer material for ...

... it doesn't dry out. I find veggie seedlings to have stepped growth cycles, it seems that they need to work on growing one area at a time say roots then foliage then roots and so on until they're big enough to produce flowers. So while they look like they're not growing they're most likely establishing ...
