You could spray with safers soap on the underside of the leaves . Every 3/5 days till you don’t see any more bugs . If you can identify the bugs would help also.

Possibly thrips, you can see them with the naked eye easily so have a good look especially at the undersides of the leaves.

Safers soap isn’t a bad idea even if you don’t see anything, they also have one called safers end all that should kill off thrips if there are any.

Hard to say… maybe a phosphorous issue? What are you feeding, how strong and how often?

It looks like spider mite damage to me. have you looked underneath the leaves?

Yep I think I can see 2 spot spider mites in the first picture.

but @beacher is also right. It looks like there is thrip damage as well in the 2nd pic.

Check underneath. I’m willing to bet you’ll see a bunch of mites of all sizes down there as well as eggs. They prefer the underside of the leaf.

take the plants out for insecticide treatment(bathtub?) & heat the tent interior to 120-150F for a few hours, sterilize exterior & all work areas, tools, etc.
