It would be even easier/cheaper to make it a simple pond with an air pump providing water movement and adding oxygen to the water. I help run a large basil operation and we have a couple acres of ponds and not very much oxygen added but it grows the same as our nft greenhouses. Tomatoes might need a lot more oxygen since they grow quite a lot bigger, but for herbs and lettuce it works fine.

Where in Korea did you move to, if you don't mind me asking? I'm moving to Korea next March

Also would this work for growing crypts?
