What Temperature Do You Keep Your SW Tanks

What Temperature Do You Keep Your SW Tanks?

I am seeing very differing opinions! I am a 76.7F. Currently I have a FOWLR (which a wide variety of inverts)...but hope to make a reef as water quality improves over time and add coral. This is temperature okay? This is what I keep my FW, I know I am in the ball park. I am just looking for the most optimal.

Thanks,

WC
