Massive African cichlid die off-Next step?

I have a 125 gallon African cichlid tank that was established for 9 months with no deaths just births. After introducing 6 new fish from 2 different stores. I had a massive death with only 3 fish left in a week period. I had the water quality checked and everything passing. I plan on taking the remaining fish a putting them in my 29 gallon tank since they are die too.
My question is-How shouuld I go about cleaning the 125 gallon tank and introducing a different species of tropical fish into the tank - like Angles?

Thank you for your advice

Bleach everything in the tank w/weak bleach to water mix. Rinse everything very well and/or do a couple freshwater soaks for a few days at a time to let the bleach leach back out into the water.
