Back to the wisteria. It can be grown floating with no problem usually. I had some that ihaf floating once and it did great. Would put off some long white roots on mine like that.
Well, if yours lay eggs on the hood, maybe I should raise the water level. My two Mysteries are about golf ball sized, are yours this size?

I have one that color. That floating plant on the right looks awesome. What is it? Do you have a standard light and fixture?

Its water sprite. The hood is the standard hood/T8fixture setup that use to come with a tank. That tank is a 10 gallon if that helps.

I also keep the water line just above the bottom of the top trim so I can't see it if that makes sense.

I had been keeping my water at that level . I'll raise it back up and see if things go back to normal. Thank you for the input.

I raised the water level back to its previous height and 12 hours later the Wisteria is showing improvement . It seems that as you lower the water level , less light is available to the plants.

Glad to hear that! I'm willing to bet it was bored's reflection theory.
