Default how do you feel about A. gayi?

I just bought some Potamogeton gayi at the LFS. Not sure if I like it yet...how do you all feel about the stuff? I am interested to know past experiences, results, etc.

Thanks!

It grows like crazy and eventually becomes very invasive. It's one of those plants you like for a little while then eventually tear it all out because you get tired of the maintanance.

I like it. I have low tech tanks so it doesn't get carried away and overgrow. About once a month I pull up any runners growing into other plants and trim it back into shape. I like the way the leaves arch and have just a tinge of red.

When it is thriving, it grows very quickly and sends out runners. I prefer to keep only a few stems to use as accents in my tank. It has a unique shape and the tops take on a brownish red color.
