I am Very sorry for your loss. It's hard call on the tank I still have Nano's which sat soaking in bleach. I have considered doing a shrimp and small invert tank with it rather than throwing it out or putting a betta in it.

I have since sterilized it. and reset it. I put a new sponge filter in and re doing a cycle with all new things. going to plant it and look into getting a wild betta. I couldn't ever put another female in there. I don't want to replace Esmeralda.

I took every thing out of the tank. I boiled the gravel and all decorations. I threw out the filter and media. I poured boiling water into the tank let it sit for a few mins, wiped it down, then poured salt water into it and rinsed it out with hot water. I let every thing air dry in the sun.
