Anemic looking Basil?

I have a small ebb&flow system with a variety of plants started from seed a month and a half ago. Plants include hot peppers,
tomatoes, cilantro, basil, and various leaf lettuces, etc. Everything looks great except the basil which pale green and not shinny
at all. Some basil is in rockwool some is in ground coconut. nutrient strength is about 850ppm, and temp is 72F and there is an
air-stone in the reservoir. I give it two 1/2 hour flood cycles during the 12 hour light cycle. Light is from a 1000 watt agro-sun
about 4 feet over the plants. There is a fan in the room and the roots are a nice white. Oh, also I am using the formula one A+B
liquid mix. It seems like everything I can do. Any ideas?

I wish my gardens were so perfect. I would blame it on the verity of basil. Try another kind.
Basil might need a lot of light. Here is 2 kinds of basil I had good results with under 70 percent shade cloth. Green & Purple
