ph's during the cycle process

do i need to have my ph's running in their positions during the cycling process? I have a 50 g with 35 pds of lr cycling right now. no fish or inverts are in the tank.

i guess i'm wondering if there needs to be that extra current during the cycling process?

Yes, you should be running your powerheads and your heaters. They don't have to be in their final positions, just something to make sure that you keep water circulating.
