    so I bought some pukani off of BRS a while ago, I soaked it in 1 part bleach 15 parts water for 3 weeks, left them in the sun for a few days, and now they've been dry for 3 or so months. Now my question is, how long do they have to soak in water and prime to dechlorinate

    I’d just dump them in sw/heater and start cycling without worrying about the dechlorinate part. Just wait for a month and test the water again.

    Once the liquid from bleach evaporates and it's completely dry, the only thing left pretty much left is salt (NaCl).

    Right, the bleach “evaporates” over time.

    Thanks guys, I'll probably add just a touch of prime just in case
