IMO you should not pay the extra price for 'cured' rock if it has to be shipped to you. The shipping process itself is going to require you to recure the rock.

No matter where you get the rock (exception LFS) your going to have die off and the rock will need to cure. With fully cured rock the time may be less than with fresh rock, but IME the diversity of life is greater with fresh rock. It is also very easy to cure the rock in a rubbermaid garbage can or rubbermaid tub, if there is already life in your tank

I cured my LR inside my tank....I didn't have anything but LS in the tank. I just let it sit there with my filter and skimmer running for a couple of weeks. When your water tests are normal, and the rock doesn't have a bad smell to it, it should be cured....at least thats what i was told and it worked for me...well so far!!! haha...someone please tell me if im wrong!

aquacon is where i got mine from and looked great when i got it. be careful though as it will cause ur tank to cycle with ammonia to spike like craazy ... make sure there are no fish in the tank.

curing live rock w/ live sand

You did good curing live rock in your tank, just as long as there is nothing but live sand in the tank, the dieing animals in uncured live rock should help to cycle and promote growth in your live sand
