Can it just be rinsed with very hot water?

I have those river rocks around my driftwood on the sand and I think they look nice.. I rinsed them with really hot water a couple of times and thats it.

I like having substrate. It keeps a beneficial bacteria colony in the tank and can be very decorative. I personally LOVE the look of sand.

Bare bottom is great for fish that are not used to having substrate, but if they are used to it, many feel insecure with out it.

I have boiled my gravel before with no problems.
Bare bottom is MUCH easier, but definitely not as appealing to the eye.

The only tanks I keep bare bottomed are the hospital/QT tanks.

Yeah, I like the look of gravel but I hate cleaning it and finding it on my bathroom floor.
