Default Thoughts on Anacharis

I've recently set up my 75 gallon Walstad style tank and I'm having second thought about one of my plant selections. It's the Anacharis/Brazilian waterweed/EgeriaDensa. Is there any reason that I should remove it before it gets established? The tank is pretty new so it would be easy to get rid of. I bought the bunch because APF said it was an excellent nutrient controller and o2 producer but I have a few concerns. Maybe I have a subconscious bias because I grew up on a Florida river that was choked up by hydrilla and this looks very similar. I'm worried that it would take over the tank before the other plants establish themselves. Am I being overly concerned and will regular pruning keep it in check? These are the other plants in my tank if it will give you guys a better picture of what I'm working with: Vallisneria Asiatica, Alternanthera Reineckii mini, Ludwigia Ovalis, Golden creeping Jenny, leaf Ludwigia, Brown Cryptocorne Wendtii, Bacopa Caroliniana, Dwarf Sagittaria, Althernanthera Bettzickiana, lobelia Cardinalis, Cardamine Lyrata, and the Anacharis.

Leave it in. Every tank is different, and it is impossible to know for certain which plants will flourish and which will die. If you decide youi hate it, it is easy to take out later.
