I've read this really helpful guide ( link ) telling me to turn up the temperature to 82-84F when fishless cycling but then I also read the TSS Q and A thread ( link ) saying that the stored temperature should be between 40-80F? Will it be fine to crank up the heat to above 80F? I'm scared it might kill the bacteria which was pretty darn expensive.

I don’t think keeping it at 80 will do any harm. I normally just cycle the tank at whatever temp I will be keeping the tank at long term.
