Nitrogen Fixing Aquatic Plants?

This idea was brought up by a fellow aquarist in a discussion last week.  I
ask the botonically inclined among us, are there aquatic plants already in
the hobby that maintain a symbiotic relationship w/ nitrogen fixing bacteria?

I know only of terestrial legumes that maintain root nodules w/ nitrogen
fixing bacteria.  Don't laugh, but are there such things as aquatic
legumes?  Or aquatic plants which may not be legumes but harbor the
N-fixing bacteria none the less?
