Water Temperature

Hello,
I'm a bit confused as to what temperature my saltwater aquarium should be.
Iv'e read that a temperature of 24c (75f) is optimum for reading correct specific gravity of 1.022-1.026.
I have however read more often that marine water temps should be around 78-80f.
Which is correct??
Bearing in mind i am planning on having a pair of clownfish, a cleaner shrimp, a hermit crab and a turbo snail, what is there preferred water temp??
Thanks!

I keep all my tanks at 79 degrees. Even my freshwater. It seems to be pretty easy in my house to maintain that temp.

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

IME 78-82 is optimal. The key is stability though. Get it to a temp. and try to keep it there.
