your pH is a little low you could look into raising it to 8.2

Is this the case for just salt water theneard about the "increase your temp to speed the cycle! from an article here after I cycled my salt water so I never tried it, but I just started cyling my 75g freshwater tank and with the high temperature I've already noticed is making a difference. I believe I'm day 5 into it and nitrites just started to appear last night. Temp is right around 86-87.

i don't think the temp has anything to do with it. i think it has to do with the size of the initial ammonia source.

I agree I've always thought that the cycle speed depends on the initial levels of ammonia introduced to the tank
