Where are you putting your heater? I have the 50 Watt Hydor Theo in the small compartment where the powerhead is and it is at 83 F while the tank is at 75 F. Afraid I might need to put it in the tank.

Totally happy surprise,...

Careful with the salt, some freshwater fish can't take it. 86+ for 14 days and cleaning top of substrate every other day did it for me.

So you added ammonia during your fishless cycle? If not the tank is not cycled, you really need to test for the holy trinity of tank cycling:
Ammonia = 0
Nitrite = 0
Nitrate > 0
