I scrub the dirt off then I boil mine for a good 1/2 hour to an hour. Then I run cold water over them for a while and let them cool. I dip them in some fish water first before putting them in the tank.

I've never had a problem! :fish:

So let them sit in boiling water for 1/2 and hour to an hour?

No,, I just boil them that long. Let them cool in the cold water or on the counter for a while before using them....sorry about the confusion. I knew what I was thinking, but sometimes my mind works faster than the fingers (or the other way around). :oops:

I just scrub them with hot water and a stiff bristled brush, no boiling. I've never had any problems.
