I would suggest the temperature is too high, even where it now is, for Egeria densa. This plant is cool water, and does well in with goldfish as an example.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

They are vegetarian. I remember back in my childhood days (some several decades past) and our goldfish "bowl" with the 2 fish and some strands of floating Egeria densa [didn't know that is what is was back then, but the local Woolworth sold it for goldfish bowls] and the plant did remain green for some time. The goldfish did nibble on it.
