Dropsy I dump my tank or can I reuse it for another Betta?

My 2-year old Betta died this morning from Dropsy. I had been treating with Maracyn, Maracyn 2, epsom salt and water changes but I guess it was just his time.

I have another Betta, in an adjacent tank, and would very much to have 2 Bettas again.

So my question is whether or not I can reuse the tank. If I can, I would appreciate some guidance on what steps I need to take before bringing another Betta home. Thanks.

Thanks Ivandert and Seki.

I also have a 2.5 gallon tank, although mine is acrylic, if that makes any difference in using a bleach solution. I'd love to keep this tank as I've modified it to use a Red Sea Nano filter instead of the Aqueon that it came with. I'm guessing I should clean the filter the same way, yes?

@ Seki - glad to hear your new betta doing great.
Yes, the Minibow is exactly what I have. Glad to hear you had no issues w/the bleach. Thanks!
