stability is more important. I think you'll be ok.

I agree with Ray, stability is best...same with pH.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

76 is a little on the low side for reef. 78-82 is OK, but you don't really want to go over 82 at all. A safer range would be 78-80... that leaves you some wiggle room at the top end. I have my controllers set to keep the tank 78-79 with no issues.

Is the lid a full lid completely sealing the top? If so, remove at least a portion of it. That way you'll see a reduction in your temperature as well as help increase the gas exchange between the water surface and the air.
