Welcome to the plant domain. :)

They'd have to get pretty big...
They grow like bamboo- their roots love being underwater, but the entire plant cannot be submerged.

I'm pretty sure that the leaves should be above water as well. Perhaps grow them in a bucket until they get taller then your aquarium, trim the lower leaves off, then transplant them.
