Water Temp while cycling

I have a new 29 gallon tank that has been set up for 4 days now. I have 45 lbs of live rock and 20 lbs of live sand. What should the temp be while it is cycling. The temp is currently 81. Is that too high?

Bacteria grows faster in warmer water anyway. Try to reduce the temp. when you get fish/inverts. You might want to add another ammonia source too like a table shrimp (in a net) to get a strong cycle.
