It's semi hydroponics, there's not really any root rot though... Also this is 2 days after the application, so no visible damage.

Here's a few extra different angles.

I'm considering running the waterfall 16 hours a day with a photoperiod of 14 hours a day to compensate for what I believe is a slightly weaker light

I'll probably half fill the tank with water, let the pump pull it out and do it again.
