I would only suggest Cryptocorynes and Anubias as aqautic aroids for the aquarium.  Pistia requires lots and lots of light.  Spathyphyllum I am sure would eventually rot, although I keep one as a marginal plant in a frog terrarium.  The other two genera I will let others chime in as I don't have any experience with those.

Good luck.
If you want to grow plants in aquariums but you don't know how to you can visit the Aquatic Plant Central, which is a nice forum on how to grow planted tanks, and has a great subforum on growing Cryptocorynes.

I?am an Taylor Holzer?I am 14?I am an Aroid collector and i would like to add
some aquatic aroids to my collection.

i have a large aquarium 55 gallons with some fish. and a smaller one that is 10
gallons with nothing.
i was thinking about adding Pistia stratiotes, spathiphyllum, and Cyrtosperma
to my 55 gallon.
in the 10 gallon i was thinking about adding anubias, and cryptocorynes.
also i would like to have a typhonodorum could you keep them in just wet soil?

are there any other aquatic aroids i could grow in my aquariums?

any help would be appreciated!
also if you have seeds for these plants i would appreciate them.
?i only currently have the spathiphyllum in the aquarium.
