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.

you can clean it out with white vinegar and water solution or very diluted bleach (if you go the bleach method rinse like 80 bajillion times and then once more)
yup clean the filter the same. You'll have to throw the cartridge and start anew but you should be fine outside of that
