Curing rocks and driftwood

Hello all--

I've had a lot of trouble with my rocks in the past. This fungi keeps appearing on them, and then spreads to the fish.
I've boiled them, bleached them, and soaked them in some anti-aquarium fungus stuff, and it keeps coming back, and eventually kills my fish.

What can i do to get rid of this?
I have a feeling that the answer will be "just don't use the rocks", but
i spent over $250 on these rocks. (That's a lot of allowence money!)

Thanks in advance,

Have you put them in a tub of water and just let the fungi run it course. It might take a couple of months for it but that is the only thing that I can think of right off the top of my head since you have tryed everything else.

Whats this green fuzzy stuff thats growing in my tank.
