Disinfecting fish tank

Hey guys. I have a question about tank cleaning. I had a Betta die recently from what I belive to be dropsy. It was sad but I had him for several years. I want to move my other Betta fish into his old tank. How do I clean it safely for him? Thank you.

I use bleach. I breed fish though and absolutely can't risk cross contamination. Just rinse with tons of Prime'd water.
Vinegar is good also.
