Sure you can get rid of duckweed. Take as much as you can out... use a net.
Turn the filter off so it isn't swirling around anywhere. Then start
picking out every little individual piece you see. You won't get them all
but everytime you go into the tank, pick out any little piece you see...
you have to get EVERYONE. I did it on two tanks. It works. Just be
diligent. And if you reintroduce it... pick it out right away.

Or you could get a duck! Goldfish will eat it too.
