What's happening to my garlic?

I have two indoor experiments happening with my garlic. This one is hydroponic (kratky method) and the there in soil.

Soil version is going great!
The hydroponic started off nicely, yet this is happening now. Nutrients started as 10-10-10 in the hydro test, 30-8-6 in the soil (just learned the mix).
I did up the Nitrogen to match the soil experiment and may have over done it..

Here's a pic of the soil experiment. All were started at the same time.

It looks like you nailed the problem, too much nitrogen for hydro growing of garlic.

So, my though is to remove 2/3rd's the solution and fill back with water. Assuming I'm not to late to do so..
