what temp for my tank?

I have a 10 gallon tank with 14 lbs of live rock and 3 Astral(sp?) snails. What temp should I be running it at for the snails to be comforatable?

thanks in advance.

Yep that warm. I keep my tanks right around 80 but plus or minus a couple degrees is ok. Consistency is the key, you don't want your temp fluctuating.

Its exactly as jamal says just like any creatures, if you don't keep anything consistent then they stress and die on you, especially saltwater creatures and corals.
