By the looks of it i think its more like my bunched plants are creating a net for it cause when i shake them it all falls off and they are definately green. Not withered. Your right though i am gonna have to lower the circ pump down more to get better flow on the bottom. I might just get two weaker ones so i can put them on each sides instead of the 700. thanks for that suggestion.
