It is doable however, they must be grown with only the roots covered. The leaves and stems must be in the open air or they will die.

They also get really huge, so if you are planning to grow these inside the aquarium you will need to give them about 6-9 feet above the tank to grow out.

They will suck nutrients out the tank extremely quickly so you will probably need to plant them in soil to meet their nutrient demands.

Since they are difficult to care for most people don't grow them indoors.

Amazon swords maybe.

Most other plants won't grow if their stems are underwater.

You might try something like limnophilia aromatica, or one of the amania species and just let it keep growing once it reaches the surface. They often break the surface if you don't trip them back.
