What fish are considered reef safe I am going with both soft and hard corals eventually and I currently run my tank at 80 degrees, is this to warm everything seems to be thriving and growing great even the unwanted algae Shocked

All depends on what you consider "reef safe". Almost all fish are not reef safe in some way. Some eat coral, some eat shrimp, crabs, other fish, sponges, algae, worms, etc. If you mean coral safe then there is a long list. The best thing to do is decide what fish you like and research it like crazy before buying it.

BTW, your temperature of 80 degrees is good.
