As long as you haven't already cycled your tank and started to add livestock, then curing the LR in the tank serves two purposes. You cure the LR and cycle the tank at the same time.

I suspect that @ 2.99 per lb your not getting LR, your getting base rock In either case, if the rock is fully cured, then no you don't have to cure it, but I might recommend quarantining the rock for the following reasons:
1) You only have your LFS's word that the rock is fully cured
2) If they have fish in their rock tanks, it is possible to introduce parasites into your tank

Too true! My lfs treats all new livestock with copper and I don't get anything he hasn't been keeping for me for at least 2 weeks. Never had a problem till I came home with a zoo colony rock. I just put my purple firefish in QT due to an ICH outbreak.
