Ran the light for 5 hr and did not get to hot . You could still touch it after running for 5 hr

Ok I'm back. About to set up the tank this weekend if every thing goes good. I have a Question . When I start up the tank with 60 lb of LR & 50 lb DR & 80 lb of Fiji pink sand should I keep both of my reactor empty until it Cycles. Or run it for a few months be for I put every thing in the reactor ?

You definitely do not want to run any sort of reactor during a cycle.
