Cycling w/ lr

Ok so I did the fishless cycle with raw shrimp and it worked fine, but this was before I got lr, I thought i'd get it sooner. Now that I have my lr can I do the fishless again and would this help speed the process of lr bacteria?

If you have already done the cycle why not just cure the LR. Then you can add it to your tank without the fear of another cycle. If you have not cycled all the way then cycle the tank and cure the LR at the same time. If you have already cycled read this article.
