Cycling temperature?

I'm here with another dumb question lol. What's the best temp to cycling? I'm about a week in and I'm not running a heater or chiller so at night the temp drops to about 77 and during the day at the last hour of all 8 t5s being on it goes to 81. I wonder if its better to cycling with warmer water.. Any thoughts?

Cycliing at a high temp will definitely help the multiply faster. Temp around 82 to 89f is good. Also just as important for cycling and imo your tanks overall heath is a stable tank temperature.
