I use a large Wok, with a metal grate to keep the rocks out of the water. The water boils, but the rocks, or wood is steamed to disinfect. All bacteria, or whatever else has lived on the material is destroyed , and nothing sits in the water. I place the lid over the Wok, and move the larger pieces of wood from end to end to steam each section for 5 minutes. Never had any problems, of course you need to cool the rocks before adding to aquarium.

I've boiled rocks. Any time I've made "stone soup" with my daughter. We keep a special rock in the cabinet just for that.

Good to know about the whole rock boiling = possible explosion thing. On a similar note - but not fish related - if you use that glass Pyrex bake ware do not put it on a cold surface like on top of a cold metal stove when taking it out of the oven or it can explode. Put it on a wood type surface. I knew a girl who's mom this happened to & she got shards of glass all in her hand this way. I just use metal baking pans now after hearing that.

Who knew?
