Things are still moving along slowly. The growbeds are actually finished and working now. I was able to source some explanded slate which was most cost effective compared to hydroton or expanded shale, even lava rock isn't available in my area. I built these sifting pans for cleaning the stalite, just filling them and shaking them off in a kiddie pool and dumping them into the GBs.

As an experiment I set 2" foam on top of the gray DWC beds instead of floating in the water so there is an automatic air gap and no air stone in them. I think the natural humidity and incoming water will keep the net pots wet enough for seeds to start and grow until their roots can get down to the water, we'll see if it works though. My other main concern is if any condensation starts leaking through the top of the GB/bottom of the foam.

I also have the tanks roughly where they go now.
