Hi Cobb Hill - how exactly do your buckets work? You said 2 drip lines, is there a constant drip going? Is there standing water in the buckets at all? If so, do you have any roots in the water? If there's standing water in the buckets, do you have an airstone in them?

Just trying to get to the bottom of what's going on with a better understanding of how your buckets work.

Also, how old are they? How long has the issue been going on?

Your temps/environment sound good. I'm jealous of the res chiller.

This link has helped me some:
