Starting to assemble the hydroponics

I'm starting to assemble the hydroponics system I'll build! Today I received a few more supplies from Amazon, and got a few more things I needed from Home Depot. This morning I started putting everything together. I tested the air pump, and I was able to pump water upwards just fine using it.

On the pictures below you can see the cups I'll use to support the plants, all lined up on top of a container lid. My plan is to carve holes into the lid to support the cups. Then use the container to store the water with nutrients. The plants will be placed in stone-like ground that I'll fill up the cups with, and that will enable to water to go through it and reach the roots.
