Hydro dwc ect takes alot. Do u have a water chiller or whats the temps in the res hold at. I see alot of lights and no tubing between each one as they dont look like air cooled or whatever. Might have alot to do with heat. As myfriend said fill out the support ticket and that will help every1 alot more. No need to scrap 4 to 6 good plants

I’m a bit late but can you explain the system you built with a simple drawing ?
Pails,pipes,pumps,res location etc. Explain all please

Show pics of bubbles in water. Each pail may be different. Also note water height to bottom of net pot.

Also always check for roots clogging output flow from pail. I usually wrap roots on airstone airline to keep from getting to output.

Also lol I keep thinking of possible problems. Check foam filters in any submersible pump weekly or as needed to maintain proper water flow.

Looks like a lack of air flow to your quicker growing plants. I’m with @Mark0427 on the chiller idea, but check your air hoses, they need to be at least nearly the same length from air pump manifold? You may be getting more output in one or two buckets compared to your other ones. Air, like water, requires same length hoses to deliver equal outcome.
