I have found riccia to be a much worse pest than duckweed -- even a tiny
broken strand of riccia re-establishes a colony in no time.  So, if you are
going to use it in a place that is only a plant filter it should be okay, as
would duckweed.  My choice for a floating filter plant in low light would be
frogbit -- it grows like crazy and is easier to get rid of should you decide
you don't want it around.
