I ran mine at 79į it cycled in 10 days. I'm not saying yours will be that fast but try 79į and do your water tests often.

Temp doesn't really affect the cycle. Just keep it from 78-82 like you would for fish.

@10g_Nano. That's not gonna happen all the time. You simply got lucky. Your tank also had less it had to cycle. The odds of your cycle being fully complete are low, because you still had nitrates to remove.

Sounds about right (cycles def vary.) I'm sure you already know but once the ammonia starts dropping, nitrite will spike.

Your tank looks amazing! Lol you don't even need corals looks fine as it is with those lights

Wish I could get lights like that... Too expensive for now.

Wow! Didn't know you could turn them up/down. That's pretty sweet!... you can adjust for corals and things which I imagine would be very handy.
