no overkill on that or soak with fresh water 4-6 hours then dump and refill with fresh water and soak again 4-6 hours...but I am paranoid like that

Yeah, I'll definitely be soaking in fresh water a lot :)

I should soak the gravel too right?

If you soak the gravel make sure you let it air dry completely (in the sun if possible). You can spread it out onto a plastic trash bag and set it in the sun. You should not be able to smell any chlorine. Also, When you're ready to set up your tank use a double dose of dechlorinator just to be safe.
