Are there multiple temperatures where a reaction can reach equilibrium or is there a set equilibrium temperature for a specific reaction?

I believe reactions can reach equilibrium at multiple temperatures but the K changes.

The equilibrium changes with temperature and can be reached at different temperature but the equilibrium constant will be effected. As temperature increases the value of K decreases.

all reactions will eventually reach a point where molar concentrations will become constant so in other words all reactions attain equilibrium after a certain period of time. Temperature, however, will affect the forward and reverse reaction rates thus affecting the equilibrium constant.

Each reaction has a different K's that correspond with different temperatures. This is why the temperature is often given in the question
