What's the ideal temperature for my 75g reef tank? Currently I'm running it at 74-76 . I heard so many different temperature and not sure which is the best

That's what I thought beggining . There one fish store running it at 75. Some even suggest it run cooler better for coral as they like cold water. At one point in summer when my chiller broke down it wejt to 82 and some of my coral start bleaching .

I keep mine at a steady 80 and at night let it go down to 79 at the lowest!

76 is still a bit on the low side ime. Haven't heard of corals doing better in colder water either. Have more info on this?

What's weird was I increase the temp to 77 and the coral don't open up as much as when it's in 74
