Rapid temperature swings do more damage than you might think. That's one thing you won't see in the ocean. Cooler currents do happen, but it is pretty slow.

I sure understand that, but that should also be factored into the corals he can keep.

I tend to go a bit higher on salinity and consider 81-82 near top of the temperature range for many sensitive corals. In open water they can stand higher for brief periods of time, but our closed systems are more vulnerable. Yes, I know some have subjected their corals to up to 86F, but I guaranteed they didn't like it.

Is that temp too high for a fish only tank? I don't plan on doing coral yet. Pretty new to the whole thing.
