If you keep your FT and ST airated, there should be enough oxygen in the water. I had constant flood in my garage and never got root rot. Yeah actually I had root rot once, it was lavender and was bought from Home Depot...

Yes, your problem is and mine was, not enough grow beds.
For every gallon of FT you need a gallon of GB.
Try adding an extra GB and see what happens.

I know your post was awhile ago but I thought I'd post anyways.

When it comes to our garden, I use two routes for whiteflies. Firstly, find the yellow sticky pads. They are essentially pieces of thin cardboard with an adhesive on one side. Hang these around plants and place some pieces on substrate. These are very effective at catching any flying or hopping organisms.

Secondly, pick up some neem oil and spray, spray, spray. These little suckers seem to stick around. I have found that it is best to spray plants when they are not in direct light. The refraction of light off the droplets can sometimes burn tissue.

The last thing that I can think of is, quite simply, ladybugs. The strategy with ladybugs is obviously keeping them on the plants. The easiest way to do this is by having the area enclosed, or to tie cheesecloth over the plant and release ladybugs inside.
