Plant ID help

I'm hoping someone can help me with what plant this is.
It arrived with a fish several months ago, I stuck it in the substrate and it grew like crazy.
Thanks for the help.

Looks like guppy grass, Najas guadalupensis. I've got a couple of tanks with it taking over. You can float it, plant it, grows in shade, grows in bright lights, and if you break it, it just makes a new plant. Great for sucking up excess nutrients, not a plant I'd put in an aquascape.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

Thanks! I have some n-class endlers planned for this tank eventually so perhaps not a bad thing to have in there...
Although the rest of the tank is kind of nicely, more cleanly planted so it's kind of weird having that mess there.
