I bleached my rock is that ok?

So I had some rock that I took out of my nano and put it in a bucket then kinda forgot about it for a few weeks...opened the bucket and good god it was nasty so I let the rock dry in the sun for a week the. Put it in a vat with water and bleach. And then ran clean water in and pumped it out for 24hrs to rinse it. Did I make it so it will leech bleach into my tank? Is it safe to use?

I think if you let it dry out completely one more time that will evaporate any chlorine left in it. Give it another week in the sun.

Add some water conditioner to the tank, it turns chlorine into something safe for fish so if there is any left water conditioner should take care of it.

I think that corals would be the first to tell you if there is any trouble. Is this a reef tank or fowlr?
