    If plants are growing well, you can still have a situation that doesn't bring about pearling. If you're flow is good, then the o2 will be diffused into the water so quickly you won't see the build up of o2 on the leaf. If you want to check, turn off the filter for a while.

    Pearling is a good indicator that things are going well, but it shouldn't be the ultimate goal.
