Hello, I planted some Blyxia in my tank the other day and the next day most of it floated to the surface and all the roots were gone. I have a lot of MTS, and I was thinking that it was them. I also have some Angelfish, Serpae Tetra, A Pearl Gourami, and 2 Clown Loaches. So who was it? :(

It's Blyxa. If it did not float up on you at least once, then you planted it wrong :)

Just keep on replanting until new roots take hold. Plan on re-planting every couple of months or so. It's normal and it's Blyxa.

It's the clown loaches. I planted a bunch of blyxa in two of my tanks one had clown loaches and other larger fish, the other tank had a variety of tetra and roselines. Both with eco complete. I can't keep the blyxa down in the tank with loaches. I only had 2 of 30 stems float up in the other tank

Yeah I hope It's ok, but most of the leaves are gone too. Some of the plants are just gone! I had 10 and now I have 2. Just hoping that these two will re produce :(
