However, changing the temp radically over a short period of time would effect you tank environment. Not necessarily bad depending upon what else is in the aquarium but it can cause a partial recycle. Also be aware that if you are cycling at 40 degrees, it will take longer to establish a stable environment that encouraging bacteria at 75 and slowly dropping the temperature. So even though you are at the two month mark you need to add additional time into the "is it soup yet" equasion.
