I add enough bleach to make the water feel slippery. Bleach is cheap, so, I use lots.

How long do you rinse to get the bleach out before you put the rocks in your tank?

If you are using rocks, give them a good rinse until the smell is gone, or add some dechlor. Letting them dry will finish off any residual chlorine.
