What ammonia source are you cycling with? Tank looks good so far. The temp of 78*F (26*C, I think-lol) is fine, looks like you won't be needing a heater much.

For a good strong cycle that will support fish and not have a mini cycle when you add fish, the ammonia should ideally get up to 4ppm, so keep an eye on it.
