will it work i can't say for sure
but you actually don't need to be to fussy all most always emptying the tank and cleaning filters in tap water will do it but i would never do this myself or recommend this
the best thing i can suggest 100% proven track record leave original tank water in and add LOTS of sea salt
then drain tank and wash gravel and refill job done
