I would say a quarter to half a cup made up in a ten-litre bucket should be fine... I usually just use diluted pool acid (1:10) it removes the lime-scale and kills most encystments, eggs, or algae.

Whether you use bleach or acid, one thing is certain. You cannot leave any residue behind. Clean the tank thoroughly with fresh water before use.

Have fun cleaning! My tank is having a major cleanout tomorrow too.
