I boil mine too, much to my wife's annoyance.

I never got comfortable dechlorinating all that bleach. On top of
that, I once watched someone put high bleach concentrations in a tank
at work to eradicate malasian trumpet snails. After two weeks, the
guy came back and set up the tank and the snails were still alive.

I've never had that problem with boiling.
