I have wondered about the same thing. If we could inject o2 similar to how we inject co2 would that have any benefits. With surface agitation it helps increase o2 but would also off gas some co2. ...

It does kind of look like something is eating it, but could also looks similar to a magnesium deficiency with the darker veins and pale yellow leaves. Are you adding any GH booster? What is your GH?
