If you start with too much dead rocks, it can take up to two months.

When I bought my new LR for cycling, it was done in 3 days.

Im not sure if those rocks washed with clorox would be any good at all. Aside from being not habitable by bacteria anymore you will be introducing chlorine to your tank.

Just soak them in SW for a few days with some chlorine remover and they will be fine.

Yes, once all chlorine is neutralized. Just setting out it will eventually evaporate. Make sure there is no smell to the rock before reintroducing.

Yes, it will bleach them. But they get recovered in different algae and darken up pretty fast.
