Turns out I am quite happy with the duckweed. It continues to multiply, and so far is no trouble to maintain. Last week I noticed there were some pale, disintegrating leaves and I simply scooped those out when changing the water. Baby trumpet snails all move up to the surface film at dark and cluster in the duckweed floaters. I like seeing how Oliver swims up from below the scattered cover of plants, to look for his food offering.
Also it's nicely aesthetic to look down at the broad anubias leaves through a scree of small, gathered duckweed. I wonder at what point I'll find this little plant a nuisance like so many claim on the forums.
So far I rather like it.
