I would say 78-82 BUT the key is stability. Keep it at a temp that you can maintain within a degree or two. Stability is more important then a certain temp.

78 is a good temp. i would be happy keeping a salt tank at that temp, providing the inhabitants i am keeping are from waters that temperature.
