Azolla: yea or nay? Please weigh in

I have an opportunity to buy some azolla. It's a floating plant, and as far as I can tell it's kinda like duckweed. I would love to have floating plants. Is duckweed really such a curse? Is it true that you just can't get rid of it?

Would it do OK in a well-lit 10-gallon? I suppose I can deal with regularly scooping it out.

Azolla can be very pretty when it gets good lighting as it have the abilty to turn red :) its is definitely not as hard to get rid of as duckweed if you dont want it anymore :D if undisturbed it grows in little triangle fern like shapes

I got some from aokashi a while back. They were beautiful and turned a really nice red. But sadly it became really annoying cause it sticks to my squeezers and net. I ended up giving them all away =(.

I think azolla is the last regular floater that I don't have yet and I think it's beautiful. We will be adding it as soon as we find some.
