live rock from ich tank

long story short
my friend is willing to give me 50lb of live rock but its in his tank which currently has ich. what do i have to do for the live rock to be ok to put in my tank?
thanks
and he will also sell me a canister filter and protein skimmer from the tank for next to nothing but again it was in his tank with ich. can i just clean them with hot water and they will be fine?
