I like the bleach scrubdown followed by a VERY thorough rinse. Then, I'd fill it up with water, add a couple of gallons of white vinegar, and let it run for a week or so with some powerheads to generate current.

Powerhead = small pump that is placed in the tank to provide water current. I am sure you have seen them in tanks or at the LFS.

They usually pump between 50-300GPH and have suctioncup mounts to hold them aganst the glass.
