Im afraid

Ok, my tank had nematodes. I cleaned it out a week ago and I changed the gravel. I want to use some of the old decor in it but Im scared that nematodes may still be on them and may get back into the tank. Im scared to even do a vaccume cause of the last time I used it was when I had nematodes. Im so afraid to end up back where I was. What am I to do?

Maybe you could boil the decor in water? I don't really know how robust nematodes are.

if it's been out of the water for a while, they're dead

If it has been awhile then they would not survive.
