Duckweek and nitrogen fixation

Hello all,
      I may be misremebering, but doesn't duckweed fix atmospheric nitrogen?
 If so, it may cause some problems.   I doubt, however, that an aquarium will
ever be nitrogen limited, so maybe there will be no problem at all.
      I just remember a story about rice farmers taking Westerner advice and
eliminating duckweed from their paddies.  The crop yields were then reduced
because of the lost nutrients that the duckweed provided.
