How do you clean a qt

Just emptied out my 40 gallon qt. finish treating 2 fish in it with maracyn and cupramine. Both fish died in it.
I have a apparently healthy Heni Butterfly in my 10 gallon qt. This tank is a little small for him so I would like to set up and place him in the 40 gallon.
I emptied it and am soaking it with water and bleach. Plan on rinsing it out several time.
Will this be enough to kill any bacteria or parasite that may have resided in it? Don't want to get this poor little guy sick too.

Bleach will usually kill just about everything. Just be sure to rinse it really well with lots of very hot water. The heat will help break down the bleach.
