Faye, can a johnny come lately ask a couple of questions about your "kit"?

How do you run the GB's? F&D or CF?

Size of your GBs and size of discharge pipes?

Seems you are very comfortable putting a drain in a corner. Do you slope the GB to that corner?

Thanks,

Hi Bob, you sure can ask. Growbeds are usually flood and drain, 15 mins on 45 mins off. No slope on the growbed as water turns over hourly and gravity drains though 40mm pipe back to the fish tank.

Forgot to say growbeds hold 5oo litres of media, usually expanded clay.
