I have had 2 banana plants in my 55 for a few months (not actually sure when I got them) all of a sudden after a water change a couple weeks ago one started to float a bit. It is still secured to the sand by a root or stem that grew on its own. I don’t want to disturb it or bury the tubers, I was told it could begin to rot.

Is it an issue to let it float like in the pics?

I don't see any problem with this. You could place a rock or piece of wood or something under it to secure it to if you're worried about it dislodging.

Thanks seems to be doing fine so not going to anything. I figured I’d ask since I didn’t know

My bananas all melted when the plant sent out roots, but the plant was fine and continued to grow until I dismantled the tank. If those are roots, I'd dig them into the substrate or use a weight.
