Seedlings are doing very well. In the growbed (clock wise from left) I have Chinese parsley, Spinach, Japanese Cucumber, Red Spinach ( Amaranthus Dubius), Cabbage, Water spinach & Chinese kale.
I added the pipe extension from the pre filter outlet to avoid splashes from hitting and injuring some of the seedlings.
I have had major deaths of my catfish due to unknown reasons, my guess it could be the hydroton being new and was not sufficiently washed. Wife insisted it's because I didn't start the system with ammonia this time around. Could be right.

The frame was damaged in a storm few months ago so I had to harvest and switch off the system. Finally had time last weekend to to clean things up so I took the opportunity to reset and redo the setup. The frames are no more and I opted for simpler, low profile setup for better structural stability. I need to get me more LECA!
