    Well, if everything is up to snuff I would suggest a good tank cleaning, pick, pull, prune, preen all the plants, stay on it for a two or three weeks, and if all you're nutrients are in order the stag will stop growing. :D

    Clean tank.
    Use a hair Comb, brush your hair grass often.
    Trim/mow the hair grass, cut to 1-2 inches, it will grow back just like your lawn.

    Keep the tank clean and do water changes after you do large pruning, over feed etc.

    Remove as much as you can and trim it all off.
    It's inducible from uprooting large plants, adding too many fish, NH4.
