I found this with a simple "Mussels Oklahoma" Google search, since I'm unfamiliar with distributions west of the Mississippi River and some of the unique species. The list seems to be a mix of Ozarkian (yes that's a mussel faunal province) and Interior Basin/Mississipian.

Do you think they would reproduce in the aquarium, or are we still missing another host or key trigger?

I have a few pictures of my former graduate school's mussel propagation lab somewhere, just haven't found them yet. Ohio State has a good website of their new facilities. They are becoming more frequent though as techniques become more efficient and mussel imperilement increases. As far as I know there are state or federal facilities in AL (really wanted to work at that new place), MN, MO, TN, KY, VA, GA, maybe NC and heard about one in the works in AR.
Since Matt posted while I posted: Even flow through systems don't seem to always provide enough/proper food, nutrients, and water conditions. For diet studies we used 6-8 6' high x 1' diameter columns raising different food sources.
