I pitched the yeast saturday. Krausen started to develope early sunday morning and fermentation was going strong with an inch thick krausen by sunday night. now the krausen bubbles are bigger and there are streamers where it looks like the krausen is falling back into the beer. or is it roots?

pics below

Looks like good healthy fermentation to me. The "streamers" appear to be yeast falling out after doing their job.

I would be worried that it could be a perfect ferment. My question is what temp did you pitch?

Looks like you have a good beer going! That's how my first brew looked and it's turning out great!
