Why not get a chlorine test kit?

By the way - in the pure form, sodium hypochlorite is a liquid, so
drying would allow it to evaporate.

I'm not sure what you are planning to keep from the old tank (ie
gravel, decorations, ect)

but if you can totally dry it, you should be able to get rid of the
bleach, unless the object is porous enough to retain it internally.
