Seedlings dying after transfer to DWC

Hmm, I never had seedlings shrivel up like that for humidity reasons. I believe this is a PH issue, and possibly High PPMs. After germination I would throw them in to a cloner with 40PPM water and a PH of 5.8. I would use a small T5 bulb since they cant withstand too much light at that stage. After I would lightly feed after a week or so. Make sure they are not getting too much light, or possibly heat from the bulb.

After two weeks I would use a stronger light.
 
Update see photos. I have one that is a mutantnt out of the 5 I was worried about. Doing well I am getting slight rust colored spots on lower leaves when I change the buckets wa water so I'm not sure what's up with that? The plants still do fine just a few lower leaves get the spots I trim the ends an receive a reward of explosive growth. Also see the size of the leaves on my best dwc. They are THRIVING right now. Lmk what ya think! Do you suggest any type of trimming topping to improve yields now??? I'm a first time grower I feel I'm doing well with help from guys like you and I appreciate all constructive criticism and input. I have attached a pic of a dark devil in soil I'm having issues with a seedling.look forward to hearing back

What type of soil is it where the seedling is in? That happened to me before where I transplanted my seedling in to soil too soon and the soil nutrient concentration was too much and I think the PH was off too(Future mother plants). I had to flush the pot with distilled/filtered water from all the nutrients. I PH'ed the water before the wash. After about 2-3 days I saw the new growth was normal, then gave it a new light dosage of nutrients. Make sure you work your way from the bottom up. When I have new clones and they aren't looking good, I make sure I start very low, when i see the nutrients are being consumed I know what the concentrate should be (RDWC), some times my plants can consume 200-300 ppms a day. Log all your experiments. A month to two months from now if this happens again, you can go back and read that as reference.

FYI. When flushing you want to run as much water until the drain water is clear.
