Basically, I think you are right.
Aquatic plants that thrive in NY will go dormant in the winter, and may not adapt to warmer water.
Most of the aquatic plants we grow in aquariums are tropical to subtropical.
Many grow in areas of changing rainfall, so they are under water during part of the year, and in damp areas but not under water long enough to flower.

See if there is a web site that is specific to your area (probably maintained by the state) with a list of aquatic plants that are native to your area. The research these to see if any might make good aquarium plants.
Worth a try! You might discover the next great plant craze!
