Read the article I posted earlier about cycling your tank. It'll instruct you on what to do.

"If your wife ever asks how much something was for your tank, just tell her you got it on sale and you had to have it! She'll understand"

The live creatures do not make it LR. The beneficial nitrifying bacteria is what makes it live. Just go through the cycling process and see if you go through a cycle. If you already have (live) LR it might not spike much but either way you`ll be sure.
