Mites, Bacteria, Fungus or Deficiency?

Having trouble figuring out if this is russet mite damage or what…Phosphorus/Potassium deficiency? Thrips? All of the above? The pics are of lower older leaves…the leaf isn’t curled up at the petiole so… might not be russet mites.?? The environment is where it needs to be…24 /7 T5 veg…hydro…

Here are some more/ better pics…yeah, i’ve been looking with a scope but i don’t see anything my eye cant see…I did have some thrips and spider mites(not the 2 spotted ones) think they could set up shop but i took care of them early on so…are broad/russet mites hard to see even with a 60x scope?.. i know normal light is better but.

Looks like heat stress to me … how close are your fixtures to the plant… looks like a hps? How many watts

I use 1000 watt MH/HPS… leaf temp is 73 F. air cooled with glass… they are about 24" above the plants

Hmmmm that’s od
