Oh I like it, free food for my apple snails, mbuna, and goldfish. Doesn't cause any real problems, other than sometimes the flake food can be hard for the fish to get to, but the filters are fine as long as that prefilter is on them.
Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?
And now you know why we all hate Duckweed... First time I got Duckweed I ended up with a dwarf version. BIG mistake. My tank looked like a green snow globe...
I have mixed feeling towards duckweed. On one hand I like the look, it grows quick and a lot of fish love to eat it. On the other hand it grows too quick, clogs filters, blocks out light, gets stuck onto everything, grows too quick, never goes away and it makes my arms ich when it gets stuck to them when working in the tank.

I've got Frogbit and Dwarf Water Lettuce. Of course I have Duckweed as well even though I've TRIED to eradicate it...
I'm guessing that it would work out much better in a tank that didn't have an HOB filter but a Sponge and/or Canister/Wet-Dry Filter where the output of the filter is actually below the surface of the water instead of the HOB waterfall.
Other floating plants can corral the duckweed so it doesn't get blown all over by the current.
