I'm planning on keeping german blue rams and apistogramma in a 55 gallon tank. Many of the articles online give different min-max temperatures for different types of plants. This tank will probably be kept around 82F since these fish require warmer waters.

What plants do well at that temperature? So far I've found anubias, dwarf sag, crypt wendtii and wisteria. Any other suggestions?

That temperature will not be a problem for most plants!

Of more importance is good lighting, liquid fertilizers and Co2 (either liquid or injected form)
Scroll down a bit and click where it says Easy, Medium, Advanced for detailed profiles of more commonly kept plants!

This guide gives temp info but isnt as detailed about care requirements..

I love to hate Water Changes! :P

Whisteria  and Hygrophila polysperma should work fine.

When one can't explain things simply, they just don't really understand it.
