? about curing LR?

when you want to cycle your tank you put uncured LR into your tank....well after your tank is all done cycling do u take the LR out and cure it before you add the fish or do you just keep it in there and add fish TIA

*********SO SORRY FOR ALL THE QUESTIONS JUST DOING SOME RESEARCH THANKS*********

Yep, if you put uncured live rock in the tank, and cycle it, then the rock is cured at the end of a cycle. Uncured rock puts off a lot of ammonia, so if there's no ammonia present for a week, nor nitrIte, and you have nitrates (usually higher nitrates than desired in a tank) then cycle's done and rock must be done curing.
