No... that stuff is "bonded" to the surface of the sand grains... and a brief rinse in freshwater won't kill it off if you put it back in saltwater then. (Don't use chlorinated water for the rinse though!)

I am in the process of doing the change over. Pretty much all of my cc is out. Just putting small amount of sand in every day as it is producing a sand storm, even when I try and pour it down plastic tubing. Clears within a few hours though - will get there eventually !
