Meh, just a straight form of cheato. If not out don't like it in display keep trimming it down and use a little peroxide if possible.

It is not normally invasive unless you let it be.

Oh yeah that's chaetomorpha for sure. Harmless stuff, in fact it helps with your water quality, filtering out nitrates. Can grow pretty wildly if left unchecked though.
