Naiad vs chara?

Can anyone tell from picture if this is chara or some type of niaid? Doesn’t have strong smell people talk about with chara. I’ve tried cutrine/diquat mixture early in season and it may slow it a little but not real effective. I’ve tried hydrothol granular same limited effectiveness. Seems to gradually increase along shallow banks. Thinking about trying fluridone which I’ve never used to see how it works as I also have some persistent curly leaf pondweed I’d like to kill. Obviously if this is chara the fluridone won’t touch it as it doesn’t work against algae only plants.

You may want to use a mix of cutrine plus and Endothall. (Aquathol K or Aquathol Super K) Late in the season the algae that might be present on the plant will stop the herbicide from getting to the plant. Hydrothol 191 can be toxic to fish so you have to be careful how you apply it.
