wasting time and money

If I start a cycle (100gal) with 60lbs Cured LR and LS and DSB fuge, should I just get the cheaper LR so I don't kill all the inhabitants of the really nice LR (LiveRocks.com stuff for example)? Also is it really beneficial to start cycle with bacteria booster for LS or just let nature take its corse? There are some nice kits at IndoPacificSea Farms.

Let's get a line wet!

bacteria booster
I dont like this.

If you cycle your tank with cured live rock and live sand then you really wont have much of a cycle at all cause the bactera will already be there. Dont buy 'cured' rock off the internet cause it will have some degree of dieoff during transport to you anyway so in that case. From what I have seen even the not so nice stuf from LR.com is nice when compaired to most folks LFS's selection anyway and curing live rock in your tank is a good enough cycle.
