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

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.
