I know you meant the other Mike, but I'll give my opinion as well...

From what I have read....

Cured:
Advantages
-Less pests
-Shorter cycling time
-Nice and clean, but you still should do a small cure just to be safe

Disadvantages
-Costs more
-Less life on rock

Uncured:
Advantages
-More life
-Cheaper

Disadvantages
-More chance of having pests
-Longer cycling time
-Have to cure it yourself

As far as I know, it seems like the types of pacific and atlantic rock have pretty much equal biodiversity, but I'm not entirely sure.

Also with uncured rock you can introduce alot of other bad things.

Curing rock is only a matter of holding it somewhere in clean water with currents for about 4 weeks until all the dead bits decay away. It is entirely possible to cure it in the tank if not addign any livestock. that's how I cured 300lbs in a 75g.
