Well given that they can last in outdoor ponds in the summer (in my area summers get as hot ast 115-120 degrees outside) and I've seen them overwinter in those small barrel "ponds" goldfish are a tolerant type. Normal room temp should be fine for goldfish. However, I would advise not going over 76 degrees if you can help it, usually 60-72 is a fair range for golds. As far as plants go you could always use anubis, java fern, bolbitus, java moss, and other tough plants....They might be slow growing but at least their tough. I have seen swords in some goldfish tanks though so you might want to look into that...
