I noticed this small clump of growth a few weeks ago and have been watching it to see how aggressive it is. It's coming up in pretty shallow water and seems to be flourishing amidst the FA, even in cooler water. Any ideas what it is and if I have a problem starting to fester?

Would also like to know how to get these images to just appear in the post and not just the link.

It resembles bushy pond weed to me. Someone with more experience than I have will chime in soon.

I thought it resembled the widgeon grass I had on my duck lease and I would happily let it spread since I know it wont grow very deep and is great cover. It's only in a couple of clumps right now, but it's coming up in an optimal location for the spawn this year. I guess I'll wait and see what other opinions are offered before I decide whether to dig it up or not. May have to spread a little around to see if it takes hold elsewhere, tho.
