When using beneficials, like great white, does it cause a fibrous coating on the roots? And res and equipment?
Ok, im trying a Heisenberg tea formula (tweeked to my standards) EWC hydrogaurd and great white. Using it to get rid of any nasty shit i got and then as a preventative for bad shit. U brew a tea?Simple answer: yes. The Mycorrhizae are filamentous and act as a secondary root system, providing nutrients to the plant in exchange for sugars that it needs. I would imagine some of these other species will make a home elsewhere in the tank. I'm actually going to add plastic biomedia in my DWC to facilitate them.
I got mine from The Nutrient Company. You can Google them if you are UK-based. Comes in soluble powder forms. To keep Pythium away, I think going much over 21C hits the oxygen carrying capacity of water, which is ideal for pythium to flourish. It's important, it seems, to have lots of bubbles going in the tank water. The other thing that might be worth doing, if you have the room in the tank, is put a small submersible fish tank pump with a short length of pipe on to stir the water around to help avoid anaerobic (oxygen-depleted) areas in the tank where pythium can fester. Algae and anaerobic bacteria love warm, still water. ... think of a stagnant pond with the DWC potentially having all the ingredients of one.Ok, im trying a Heisenberg tea formula (tweeked to my standards) EWC hydrogaurd and great white.

Yeah, you've got a circulating system. Could light be passing through the clay pebbles?I just got me a great new pump and have 3 other decent ones, i can use all if need be, but the new 1 has a 6 manifold and is one of those metal strong square pump, got 2 air stone in each bucket including the epicenter, the is no still standing water in the system, so hopefully everything will be ok... Thanks for your input, here is some pics of my system
