Adjust the temp. slowly like a degree every day or two. If it gets adjusted to fast, you'll shock the fish.

I think you should be okay. A reef should be kept between 79-82 degrees, right now I would strive for a constant 82 degrees. You have alot of hermit crabs and they could also be your killers of your turbos,

Just make sure there are enough (some,alot, etc) empty shells for the hermits to use when the need a bigger home. If they can't find one empty then they go on the hunt for occupied real estate. You can buy empty shells online or probably at your local lfs
