Bleaching Seiryu stones to get color back
I have a few very nice pieces of Seiryu stones in my 20 long setup that has been setup for about 6 months. Taking a look in my tank today I was finally fed up with how green and aged my once beautiful clean and grey Seiryu stones once were. So I grabbed the father stone out of the tank and ran it under hot water and used the gnarliest scrubber I could find in the house. This scrubber I found is kinda like a huge pipe cleaner, the bristles would take off your skin, its very industrial grade ( no idea where it came from ). I was going to town on this rock with that thing and its not getting its color back at all.
Can I soak it in a bleach solution to get its color back?
