    SLIP.7 initial growth sequence

    Here is an initial growth sequence from a new SLIP.7 that looks to be in bubble-upflow mode. Photo 1 shows the screen's light blocker on the same side as the light, to block the strong light from the GEM5 light from overpowering the new growth. In photo 2, 3, and 4 the screen is reversed in the black top tray, so all the light can reach the screen.

    Here is a followup SLIP.7 growth photo, which is more filled in. You can see on the right of the screen where the LEDs of the GEM5 lights are, because the light is still too much for growth there.

    And here is another followup photo of the SLIP.7 growth, showing the white parts of the screen finally filled in and ready for cleaning/harvesting.

    This SLIP.7 has just been brushed clean, and is the smallest commercial waterfall scrubber in the world, and also the smallest chaeto reactor in the world. It has a UAS bubble upflow too, but it's not the smallest (the smallest upflow is the DROP.2). This is why it's a combo scrubber: All three types in one. And they can operate at the same time, or separately.
