I respectfully disagree. A lot of methods have been suggested through the forums I am on and here are the most common ones:
1. bleach and hot water (usually done by putting the tank in the dishwasher if it will fit)
2. alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) soak
5. Metracide or Flourish Excel sprayed on the walls
From what I have read through my research, no one of the 4 most common suggestions above will rid the tank of TB, a "combo punch" of bleach and either metracide or excel is your best bet (I actually just saw another member use the same reference in another thread earlier today). I'd let the tank sit for about a week to make sure nothing survives that.
With that being said, use gloves to ensure you don't end up with TB on your skin (especially if you have any cuts on your hands). Also, it may be more cost-effective to get a new tank, depending on it's size and price. I don't know how much time and effort you want to put into cleaning the tank, especially since it's not a 100% sure bet that the TB will be eradicated.
