Is light required for cycling?

Not sure if the lights have an effect on the cycle, so I thought I would ask. If the lights are not required, then that means I can get my LR and start my cycle sooner, and save for the lights while the tank cycles.

Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me

S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.

No, you do'nt have to run the lights during a cycle.
