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

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

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.
