    Does your setup allow you to lift your plants up and get a picture of the roots? They should be bright white with no smell and no slippery feel.

    2 stones in each . Pump is 30l a minute so 7.5l a minute each stone . So 1 bucket has 15l per minute

    I would be looking for a minimum of 20 liters per minute per bucket, I used to run 40 to 60 l per minute although you need a manifold to adjust for each bucket when you do that.

    Yeah they get to a certain size and they just don't have enough air to keep going, unless you do have some root rot or something going on.

    If you want to test my theory without spending any money put all the air stones in one bucket for a few hours and see how that plant looks.

    Tested the theory and it worked . They bounced back . That is madness ???? so right now they have 30 litres per minute in the 60 litre tub

    Will have to upgrade if i want another two plants. Cheers bro
