Alright, obviously I want my reef tank to thrive as well as possible so I feel the need to ask you folks what temp you guys run your tanks at. I was pointed to a great read IMO and Im now seriously questioning the lower temp I keep my tank at. Heres the article I have been reading, http://www.reefs.org/library/article...mperature.html
So lets hear it, whats your marine tanks temp! Ill start it off. My tank stays between roughly 76.8 - 77.8 without a heater. I thought this was acceptable but greatly questioning that due to this article. I guess for arguments sake it would be best to post your average low and high temp.
Low - 76.8F
High - 77.8F
Also, maybe I should have been more specific with the title. If a mod views the thread and sees something more appropriate feel free to change it, if I could do it again it would at least be 'Reef temperature'
Hi, mine go's between-
Using a heater

Mine runs between 74 and 76. Right where I want it.
I have mine at 78 year round. Just stared about July of 09
how does lower and higher tempurature's affect the reef as a whole? do things grow better at higher tempuratures?
Mine is kept between 76.8 and 77.8.
I keep a reef and it's almost 2years old. I keep everything at 80-81.5F and have had no issues with coral growth or them closing up. It's when the temp drops I begin to see them close up. Perhaps they are used to the temp i keep it at, but...
i run mine a little high between 80 and 83
