Hi everyone, thank you for taking a minute to read this and offering any insight.

I've recently discovered, what I suspect is a fungal issue with my seedlings. If you look at the picture, you'll notice lots of very tiny black dots on each leaf. These were organic seeds purchased from a reputable distributor, so I doubt it is from the seed.
The temperature is a constant 75F with a pad underneath and they are under four 4' ft 40Watt white fluorescent bulbs for 19 hours a day at a distance of 3 inches. I think I was slightly over watering them at first because they had leave roll, but that has gotten better. There about 3 weeks old. My guess is that it is a fungal issue, but before I look for a solution, I want certainty of the issue. Please, can anyone identify what this issue is. Is it a fungal issue, light, watering???

Please and thank you. Any advice is much appreciated.

That's very strange... Do you at all use an insecticidal soap or any pesticides? If you do that might be causing the problem. If you don't, you might need to try an organic insecticidal soap. If all else fails, try gently washing them with a little bit water, it usually helps. Wishing you the best of luck!
