When the cyst falls off , it hatches, releasing a new wave which grow, start to swim and search for a new host. It's a 4-6 week cycle. At any stage it could be on the rock Even the cyst could fall off in the rock. How could you assume it is not a potential threat? Ich is one of the easiest things to defend against. It just takes a little caution and patience and ur fine

Haha, probably, I have terrible luck with ich . Could I just put the LR in my display, leave it for 8 weeks, and then start adding fish?

Would I need to quarantine LR bought from Liveaquaria.com? It says it is already cured, and I doubt they keep it with fish.

Thanks.

Here is an example.

I'm sure they don't intend to keep lr with fish, but they may be there and I doubt if one slipped in they would put any effort in removing it. They likely add new rock into the same tank. They are a business remember their first goal is to make money. Which is why I highly doubt they go through the procedures required to keep your display tank safe. It's good practice to qt everything

You don't "have" to qt anything. It's all for peace of mind and saving potential problems in the future.
