i keep corals and fish...
i keep mine at....
79 is lowest it ever goes...to 81 is highest it ever goes )
never been a problem for me )
u will find that people vary a lot in temps )
i would say personal pref ..for best results in your home environment (central heating and all that stuff)
shoot for 80 at first..u will be fine there )
