Depends what you have in the tank. I keep mine at around 75-78 degrees (give or take).

http://saltaquarium.about.com/od/aqu...eftanktemp.htm ... This may help, but most places will say between 75-80 degrees.

GL!

75 seems kinda low. 77-78 is a good temp. Even 80 is fine. If you had col water fish like a Catalina Goby then I'd say 75 or less. My temp is always about 78-80 with no issues.

Stability is more important. You don't want drastic swings in temp.

Mine has gotten a little high. I'm at 83 or 84. Nothing seems to mind the higher temp. I guess with my lights and addition of a powerhead has helped with heating the tank. I have lowered the temp for my heater so that should help lower the temp.

Yeah when I had all that hardware running I actually didn't need a heater.
