What the hell lol. Do you have a HUGE clump of ricca in there then or something? That's asking for trouble haha. I can see that floating up in a bit and pulling up a bunch of your stem plants along with it

Hm... you might be happier off with separating it and spreading it out more thinly. Tying it to some rocks or something.
