I have been told take all the rock out and put in water and bleach over night.... And all the red slime will just come off but then you have to soak it again to make sure all the bleach is gone...

Shut down your filter to avoid damage. When using sand, you need to press your fingers into the sand and turn over once a week to release Amon....then wait until it settles and vac the bottom a 1/2 from the sand and replace water.....then you don't have that problem. When all settles start the filter back up.
