"Midge Fly larva, IMO. If so, they are harmless, eat gunk, fish eat them up if they can get to them, and really only a minor nuisance as adult flies that resemble Mosquitos that swarm over growbeds and tanks, but do not bite you."

"Try looking into dutch buckets. They are modular and may provide you with a solution. If you are dead set on using long containers, fiberglass raceways may be a cost effecting alternative to plastic."

Ebb and Flow business plan

I am doing research for my business plan for a school project.  I have been having diffuculty in finding the proper equipment for a large ebb and flow system.   I have spent many hours looking on google so I've come to the conclusion that my googlefu is not very good.  Large long grow beds at least 12 inches deep to place side by side in a greenhouse.
