Thanks for answers.
Just wanted to make an update on that cutting, this method is absolutely awesome and the little guy is looking stunning. Ofc It's not wery practical if you want to trade the cutting (It's easier to remove it from perlite, check the roots etc.) But for winter when I can't ship and just want to expand the garden It's the best and easiest way imo.

i might have to disagree.. i have a big dragon fruit cutting i ordered for about 15$ about 5 years ago,
it stayed a cutting no growth for 4-5 years! Finally a few months ago it sprouted a new stem growth..
100s of seedlings grow fast, some foot and half now, about the same size as the cutting one sprout.

cuttings are the way to go. hard to get seedlings to mature size.

i have aerial roots forming on my seedlings as well they are around ~6 months old atm and was wondering if it is a sign tha i should be taking a cutting from them to root.

From what ive heard cuttings produce fruit quicker? not sure if it is established plants or seedlings the cutting they are talking about though

idk it will be learning process for me.. i think it should be pretty easy, or as difficult as one wants to make it.
on side ponds, i plan to cover with boards which help reduce light and algae, also provides a place for pots.

at first it was just a pond around the edge, for heat sink in the wasted space along the sides,
then i figured why not have fish and aeroponics, and fill up some wasted space in the middle.

the main thing for keeping fish is that they have enough oxygen, 
with aeroponics going all day, there should be plenty of oxygen..
i also think plants will get plenty of nutrients, but we shall see :)

Regarding mold / rot / algea ... and your hydro/aeroponic setup in general: How easy is it to balance the system so one neither runs the risk of starving the fish and plants or causing eutrophy to go way over the top ? Am I correct that the system needs dialling in and perhaps continuous adjustment by controlling the number of plants and/or fish ?

? what about high moisture levels from fish ponds causing mold or rot ?
in theory the geothermal drain pipe should collect extra moisture from the air and condense and drain underground.
raised beds tipping over? sounds like a nightmare..
in this design grow-boxes are a 1' tall wood frame boxes with open bottoms, the fish pond is 2' frame sealed bottom.

i guess ive calculated the square feet wrong.. maybe needed to multiply height also: width X length X height  =
20 X 50 X 10 = 10,000 % 10 = 1,000'... dang 1000 feet of 4"drain pipe (price:100'75$) = 750$
but the curve of the dome removes some square footage, so it wouldn't need 1000'... i think more like 600'-800'

 I use pea pebbles and lava rock usually when I root helps prevent rot and easy to keep an eye on progress. Then if necessary I add anything else I need after they're going good.
