Thanks for the help. Im not able to upload a picture because I cant find the cord to my camera.
Though I have do have the filter off to the side. It seems that though i put the plants in a corner they slowly float to the filter and then the problem seems to happen over and over again. For now I have moved the plant into a small vase with water until i can figure something out.
It actually a group of small plants clumped together. A friend of mine suggested tying them together with fishing line and then attaching them with a suction cup.
