Yeah mine used to get that high as well and my fish were fine. Just feel like a reef does better at a lower temp

well I had to teach her as I spend a lot of time in hospital , now I know she can be trusted , I had a service come in a little over a year ago and they messed up my tanks they just dosed the hell out of the tank not taking readings , and I even told them I don't dose my tanks ,
so now the heat is on my wife if anything goes wrong but she knows to call me if things get crazy lol , I know I can trust her not to add junk without asking , plus I'm more comfortable knowing someone who knows how I keep my tank is maintaining it while I'm away
