    Looks like it could be a root aphid.[​IMG]

    I look up root aphid
    "I filled a 5 gallon bucket with soapy water and a teaspoon of rosemary oil, mixed it up with a whisk (it's the best way, otherwise you splash everywhere). Then I took the plant, removed the air line and air stone, and dropped it in the soapy/rosemary water. It is VERY important that this soapy water is NOT aerated. The point is to suffocate the bugs. The soapy water needs to be above the hydroton, the hydroton should be floating. " IMG_20180224_103651432.jpg

    Sorry...
    The pic of the aphid, where is that on your plant you took?
    Did your plant die because of root damage? how bad was it? or did the plant die due to the soap mixture? were you able to get rid of the pests?

    for next time, genegreen on has a youtube vid on how he got rid of root aphids (i think he referred to them as "little f*ckers")...I believe he used a different formula but basically did a root dip.

    When he showed a close-up, it was a little green larvae thing in the nooks and crannies of the root systems...no wings as far as I could tell.
