What do I do to prepare tanks after dropsy?

CoconutTheBetta

Hi!

My betta contracted dropsy. I turned her tank into a hospital tank. I treated her tank with Kanaplex. Then I took her out and put her in a bucket with Kanaplex and Betta Revive.
Now I have an empty fish tank with a couple of plastic plants and pipes. For the live plants that stayed in her tank, I put them in an empty 5 gallon. To make sure that the plants don't melt and then "restart" all over again, I did a 50% water change, and instead of using fresh water, I used water from the tank they originally came in (The water I added was not yet treated with Kanaplex).

Now I'm preparing both tanks; my "hospital tank" one for either by fish who currently has dropsy for if she recovers or a brand new betta fish (PLEASE drop betta breeders!) and my empty five-gallon for a betta as well.

How do I prepare those tanks? Do I restart my cycle? Do I do a 50% water change and call it a day? Idk
