I have a 55g tank, about 5 months ago a biological meltdown (now only snails are left) but i want to start it up again and since i don't know what caused it. so here is my question how to i clean it all and set it up again? how should i wash the tank and the decor to make sure that all of the harmful bacteria is gone so nothing will happen again.

If you think its chemical contamination then yea use some diluted bleach, if you think it was biological then a good wash down with regular tap water should do the trick, then let it dry for a couple of days or you can do bleach or vinegar to just be safe.
