If not, physically removing it is your best bet.
Thanks for the help. I forgot to mention that i have some dwarf hair grass that Is starting to take root. it was the kind in a pot and has had some trouble getting acclimated to our tank i did notice some green growth today so I am hopeful. We wouldn't mind adding some other plants though I have even been playing with the idea of planting our hob. Its a home school project and we are doing it on a budget.it We don't have to many plant options at our local fish store. For now I will keep removing it when ever we find it tell we get some other plants
