Thanks for the advice. I figured that bleach would be alright, I just needed to find out what ratio to use. How long do you soak the wood for in order to kill all the algae?

T-ing it off would be similar to how I had it set up with the bio-wheels (wheels are long gone since pressurized CO2!) - half to the wheels, half to the output pipe. Doing that should give me...
