Keep in mind that there are many species of Xenia from different locations and parameters, mine also do fine in higher temperatures.

I believe you need to evaluate your livestock and where they came from and research the local conditions there.

I don't believe there is one right answer and therefore no concensus will ever happen.

In the 70's (when I started in the hobby) we found that animals died slower and grew slower at lower temperatures like 78F. Through research and experimentation I've had best success at 82 - 84F and full seawater Salinity (35ppt).

In addition I believe that overstocked tanks will fare better at the lower temps but it's far better to lightly stock your tank.

If you wake up breathing CONGRATULATIONS!!! You get another chance to do it right.

I keep my Reef tank between 80-82 at 35ppt... My Xenia grows like a weed... It is back again and to the point where I cannot get rid of it fast enough.. Lucky for me I have it in its own little area.. I have not had any problems even when i was running my tank between 82-84..
