Bleaching flourite

Hey all,

Would bleaching Flourite destroy its chemistry and render it useless in 
regards to its
iron-bearing property? In the past, my tanks developed brush algae.  I am in 
the process of setting up a new tank from scratch, making sure to bleach 
everything (plants, gravel, equipment, etc...).  I tossed out the previous 
substrate and have decided to go with a half Flourite / half gravel 
substrate combo, but the more I think about it, I am leaning toward a 100% 
flourite bed. In the event that the brush algae begins to grow over the 
Flourite, I would want to eliminate it asap, and from experience, only 
bleaching can do this (although I've heard of starving it to death which 
I've never observed). Any comments?
