Power outage temps

Due to a power outage and me being out of town. My 110 mixed reef temp dropped to 69 bf a friend got the generator hooked up. Heater now back on and temp climbing. How do you guys think fish and corals will fare??

There is a store down the street from me that doesn't have a single heater in their tanks. I just got a yellow tang from them a couple weeks ago and the temp of the water was 70. I think your fish will be fine. Some stony corals may be effected though.
