Temp/light question

During the day when my lights are on the temp in my tank goes up to about 80. Overnight when only the LEDs are on it drops down to about 77. Is this normal? Is this flux in temp okay for my fish?

My light is a 4 bulb T5. Blues are on 8am-8pm, whites are on 9am-5pm, lunar LEDs 8pm-6am.

Heater is set at 77.

55 gallon tank.

Well first off during the day the temps are usually warmer then at night plus the t5's get hot and heat the water at night the temps are cooler and you put on the led's which produce very little heat so naturally the tank will be hotter in the day then at night
