What size tank do you have that you need to rinse deco on a water change date? If you are rinsing the gravel and deco under a tap water faucet you are just killing off "good" bacteria and whatever cycle process that had started will be back to ground zero again.
Ehehehe i got my water temp during my change spot on today using what i believe is the "finger under the faucet method" :)
