I think it is quite rare to see wolffia in the aquarium, so you might count yourself lucky.

To get rid of it, simply keep netting it out. It will take a while, maybe a few weeks, but it will eventually be removed. This is the only surefire way to get rid of it that won't harm the rest of your plants.

The UV bomb sounds fun ^^ like something out of the movie Blade.

Why not try sell some of it on the for sale section of the site? I'm sure someone would like some. A lot of people breed fish and Wollfia would be a great cover, or food for certain fish. Since it isn't too common I think people would probably buy it.

I have a suspicion that duckweed can also set seeds and survive long periods of time being dried out. I had a 10 gallon tank with duckweed that I was using to breed killies and then I let the water completely evaporate and the plants die off. A year and a half later I filled it with water and the duckweed came back to life! o_O

I'm not sure if wolffia does this as well though.
