It is said that 72-78 is best. But you also have to remember that is you have the temp too high, the lights would add 2 or more depending how long it stays on.

Reef Aquarium Water Parameters by Randy Holmes-Farley - Reefkeeping.com
"All things considered, I recommend temperatures in the range of 76-83 F unless there is a very clear reason to keep it outside that range."

I keep all my tanks at 79 degrees and all is well. I live in Florida so my heaters hardly ever come on and since I use T5's and LED's I don't have heat issues so no cooler. The temp just likes to stay at 79 for me. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

79-81 seems to be a sweet spot for most

I live in Florida as well and my tank is always 80-82 degrees. I don't even own a heater and that's with a small fan aimed at my sump. If I didn't have that my tank would be warmer
