Sanitizing acrylic tank and accessories

I need to sanitize my acrylic tank after a death from what I believe to have been a bacterial infection. Will bleach harm an acrylic tank? What about the filter? I plan on bleaching and boiling the gravel. Also, what about live plants?

I used bleach in my acrylic critter keeper. I rinsed with water, then vinegar, then water again. Then rinsed again with conditioned water and let it air dry outside.... (Yes, I tend to be paranoid. LOL.... Although even this isn't enough to kill mycobacteria - but it should be sufficient for most other things.)
