Good deal...yeah, after doing a couple of soakings in a weak bleach solution, do several more soakings in fresh water that has been dechlored with Prime...that'll take care of any leftover bleach residue
Use plain old bleach, not any perfumed crap

Skip the silicone, and drill hole, using fishing line to tie it to the rock or flat piece of slate or light diffuser egg crate (weighed down with rock). Using silicone to glue wood is more trouble than it is worth.

I agree - the rotting stuff will come off with the wire brush down. I use an old kitchen garbage bin for my driftwood. A lot of my club members keep drift wood finds in bins in their back yard soaking for months and just pull them when ready.FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
