Wash it out with a bleach and water mix. Then rinse well with cold water. This is good enough.

Believe it or not my friends pet parot has had success using dirty fish tanks(really lazy i guess) ;o) anyhow if you feel the need bleach or pinesol or some other agent. But the myc. is pretty resistant to contam at that stage anyhow.

My friend just washed his tank out really well with soap and water and is planning on cleaning it with some 99% isopropyl alchohol. do you think this will be sufficient?

It is better to use 70% isopropyl. Sounds crazy, but it is true. My friends have used clorox wipes with no problems. you can buy them pretty cheap at any grocery store.

70% isopropyl is better than 99 percent because of polarity or something like that. it was about 6 years ago when i had this discussion at a lab i used to work at.
peace
