Wigglers. Still a gigantic egg sac. If you strip they will need tumbling for sure

Well, the most important thing is that her buoyancy seems to be caused by air bubbles and not float. That is good news! She will probably stop within a couple weeks. Not a big deal.

Best wishes!

Usually this behavior follows a real spawn. Eggs are swallowed and female still wants to be tumbling something. I thought the maternal instinct to drop food and chase her air bubble was interesting
