aptasia and fuge

I am moving my seahorses in a week to a bigger tahk. I have a rock in my fuge that is covered with aptasia. I am breaking down the fuge and would like to use the rock in my display tank ( has some great color on it) however it has some aptasia on it I want to get rid of, Any ideas. Put the rock in the sun. Soak it in fresh water?

Don't boil the rock, that is bad and can literally kill you. Use a syringe to shoot boiling water or lemon juice into it or use a product like joe's juice and aiptasia-x. I'm a fan of aiptasia-x for killing them off if they pop up in my tank.
