Temapture

I was keeping my saltwater tank at 78 degrees, though now I am told that temp is too high, and encourages parasites to thrive. I dropped it to 75 ...

any thoughts?

I run mine at 80. Pretty much without a heater it stays at 80 from the pumps and lights.

I would say that 75 is a bit too low.. 78-82 is the normal range.
