Another tomato newbie/ yellowing leaves

First year growing tomatoes. We have about 15 plants and about 6 different varities. On two of them the leaves have started to yellow and curl. Same planting medium, different varieties. Our reading prior to posting has suggested overwatering. No visible bugs. If it is just overwatering, will they recover or should we just give up on them? The yellowing is more pronounced than the photo shows it to be.

Secondly, we need to build cages. What is a good average diameter for the cage?

Thank you

Did you expose to direct sunlight? Could be UV burn.

Don't give them up, they're nowhere near dead. Just let the medium dry, and only water if needed

Did you fertilize? It could be a fertilizer imbalance or pH problem. The plant in the background looks great.

Still under the grow lights, and the same nutrients for the other ones. We are going to take it out of the container tonight, and change the dirt. Hopefully that's all it is.

Thanks for the replies.
