What temperature should the water be

I ask this question because my tank is situated above a boiler and with the heating on it ranges from 25-27.

some fluctuation is ok. Mike Poletta has an interesting idea about that. He likes it because it allows his corals to to be more "hardy" in case something goes wrong like a stuck heater, power outage, etc.

It only moves by a degree or so. In nature the sea temp must change from day and night?

I alwats suggest 78 - 82. The key is stability though. Always keep it where you can keep it stable.

IMO a 2-3 degree swing in temps is fine
