Here we go again, I made the time to get the closet set up for another round... Not too many changes, I still plan to see how much this little room is capable of with 1000 watts.
I moved the sump out of the room so I could get 2 more buckets in there for a total of 8 plants. I also made a little manifold so each bucket will be top fed by a drip ring. I am using a Beckett 240gph pond pump to feed the 8 buckets.
I chose the pump because it has a very nice pre-filter that's easy to access and change so I can keep the drip rings from clogging (hopefully)
There are two GH Blue Stone air pumps feeding a large air stone in each bucket..
The lighting will be 1k on a yo yo mover rather than the 400 + 600 stacked. I am hoping I can get the buckets slammed against the walls and have a larger doughnut
I am going to stick with the super slow recirculating buckets because there is no need for a chiller and they performed pretty well last time (very stable)
