another ? for you all...

We are going to add somewhere around 40 lbs of lr to our 100 gallon. Now for the question...since I'm in the middle of cycling do I need to get cured or un-cured. I don't want much die off. So I'm thinking that I wait for my tank to cycle & get cured lr & have a small cycle (if any)....since I've got a qt that's cycling now also it will be at least 3 to 4 weeks before anything goes into the 100 gallon after it cycles. Is that the better option to wait till it's done cycling, add cured lr while I have a fish in the qt for a few weeks?

Unless you are getting your lr directly from a lfs there is going to be die-off either way. IMO uncured lr from most online sites generally has more life on it and cured lr has less and both will have die-off since it's out of water during shipping but uncured will have a little more.

It comes down to how much life you want and how much die-off you want to deal with. Since your tank is still cycling I'd just go with the uncured lr online or cured if buying from a lfs.

Even with the uncured lr it would only prolong your cycle by a couple of weeks at the most.
