I heard that water hyacinth depletes the level of oxygen on water. If we grow it in fish tank in a small quantity, will it harm the fishes?

water hyacinth reduces surface disturabances creating less oxygen in the wild. More disturbance to water is going to give you a higher 02 content in your water. However, it won't do harm in your aquarium if you have filters running.
