Microdon...Pest plant?

I got suckered into taking a huge and I mean huge bag of microdon. It is a pain IMO to plant. Any experience with this stuff? I'm suspecting it quickly becomes a pest plant.

At first it didn't seem to be the most common of plants thats for sure. But it appears to grow quite easily as our society member had 6 large bags for sale. After some research on google....

Also called Najas guadalupensis, or guppy grass, after a quick google.

Guppy grass isn't to bad, but it will break apart very easily. I had it at one time and got ride of it quite quickly.

LOL Jason, I could have gotten enough to supply half of AA at least yesterday. I may end up getting rid of quite a lot of it, I'll keep you in mind.
