Roots hanging in aeroponic reservoir solution

I'm trying out an 18 gallon Roughneck DIY aeroponic system with 10 gallons of solution. Some of my 3 week old tomato plant's roots are starting to hang in the solution.

Will it be a problem to have some of the roots submerged like this? I imagine more of them will do the same as the plants grow larger.

Shouldn't be a problem unless you don't have a way to oxygenate the water (ie. air stones).
